10th Grade Health Substance Use/Abuse Project
Due Date: Groups will present the week of December 11th.
Objective: You and your group (2-3 people) will research your designated substance over the next several weeks. Some time will be allotted in class, and you will also be expected to work on this assignment outside of class. You will be looking at a variety of factors related to the substance including physiological effects and impacts, use among teens, stigma around the substance, history (discovery, legal, social). There is a libguide dedicated to this project and you may also use other resources and it’s your responsibility to determine the reliability and accuracy of resources used outside of the school’s databases. Your group will determine the medium in which to present the information to the class. You can be as creative as you would like.
Suggested Presentation Mediums:
*Questions in bold must be answered in your research and presentation. Please do your best to answer as many of these as possible. You can focus in on questions that are of interest to your group or areas that are of particular relevance to the substance you are researching.
