NIDA and Scholastic - Heads Up

About the Collaboration:

Since 2002, NIDA and Scholastic Inc. have partnered to create Heads Up: Real News About Drugs and Your Body—a science-based education series that provides teachers and students innovative materials about the effects of drugs and drug abuse on the brain and body.  New materials, including teen articles, classroom lessons, and student worksheets are created and distributed every school year through Scholastic’s in school magazines, as well as posters and Web-only materials.  Annual compilations of magazine materials, as well as posters, some with teaching guides and some in Spanish, are available for ordering or downloading, free of charge.
