Sample Curriculums

Using the Toolkit

The Tobacco Prevention Toolkit is an educational resource that can be adapted to fit the individual needs of educators and students in all types of settings, including elementary, middle and high schools; community-based organizations; and health-related agencies.

Educators are encouraged to pick and choose which lessons will be most useful for their students and adapt activities to suit their needs. You will find that the PowerPoints, worksheets, and activities can all be altered as desired. Please also review the Crash Courses included in certain modules for more information for educators and parents, and please see the Resources section that provides additional information and websites that are relevant to educators, parents, youth, and others who are interested.

We also invite you to contact us if you want technical assistance creating a different curriculum that best fits your students, and/or if you want a training on using the Toolkit overall and any specific curriculum.

Sample Curriculums

While we encourage educators to decide on which activities to use within their classes or for their particular group of students, based on feedback from educators we have also created three curriculums that you can use, each broken down into 50-minute sessions. These may be of interest, especially if you have limited time to organize and plan out the curriculum yourself. The curriculums include:

1)    a 1-session version that covers the essential  information;

2)    a 5-session version that covers the essential activities and information;

3)    an 8-session version that incorporates more student participation;

4)    a 10-session version that includes some demonstrations to help students further understand complicated concepts.

These pre-determined curriculums allow for more consistency within and across districts and schools. Even if you use a pre-determined curriculum, we hope that you will still review the Toolkit overall, including the Crash Courses, Resources, and other links and information.
