What is Smoking? A Presentation & Mini-Unit

What is Smoking? A Presentation & Mini-Unit

This “What is Smoking” presentation contains a variety of topics, hyperlinked media resources and activity handouts related to smoking, cigarettes, addiction and peer pressure. These materials are ideal for providing opportunities for class discussion, inquiry and critical thinking and may be used as starting points for deeper investigations into related topics. The suggested activities, which are included at the end of the presentation as a resource for teachers, have successfully been used with students to compliment, extend and assess learnings garnered from this "mini-unit" on smoking. Although it is possible to complete this mini-unit and presentation within 2 weeks, I would budget around 3-4 weeks to devote enough time toward completing each activity. If you choose to merely use this resource for presentation purposes, it should be possible to complete the presentation over several days. *If you have any specific questions or suggestions about this or other resources, please feel free to ask.

Main Idea Graphic Organizer

Main Idea Graphic Organizer

This main idea graphic organizer allows students to branch their thinking out from a main idea/topic and develop it in greater detail and depth. The graphics provide students with visual prompts related to how they can layer their topic and more vividly explain it. I would recommend modelling how to use the organizer first with the whole class or in smaller guided groups before having students use it independently.
