Description

Class Experience

The effects of many common drugs on the body. 
The science behind addiction and therefore why they should always "Say No!"
In my experience as a Family Doctor, some of the wisest children are those that are equipped with knowledge. I often discuss with my teenage patients that they shouldn't just say no to drugs only because their parents say to but because if they really understood what the drugs did to their organs they would gladly say no! We often go through the science of the drugs and effects on the body and they then see for themselves and are convinced enough to Say No! Through this class I hope to start this conversation with your children!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
2 hours 40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class is about helping children understand what drugs are and the effects that they have on the organs. I always create a comfortable learning environment in which children become interested in the knowledge being imparted. I expect that through this class they will come to an understanding of why drug misuse is so detrimental not because someone told them so but because they will comprehend the actual effect of the drug on the body. There will be a clear path from the biological effects that leads them to understand the negative social and psychological effects that can also ensue. This class will therefore encourage good decisions to say no to drugs by giving them foundational scientific knowledge. All content will be taught in an age-appropriate manner and I do not foresee anything that would have negative effects.
