Fantastic Alcohol Awareness resources

Post by Mrs Christy on Fri Nov 16, 2012 10:03 am

Hi folks, with ‘Alcohol Awareness Week’ fast approaching and knowing that some of you maybe taking that opportunity to deliver lessons on this important topic, I thought I would draw your attention to some resources that my favourite resource company ‘Teaching-Resources-UK’ have released, which I think you may find useful.

Now, to be honest, I always find alcohol, along with sex or drug–related areas, one of those subjects that seems to cause kids to go a bit silly, but what I find is that if you have well planned lessons with decent engaging resources it helps to settle the little darlings down.

I will be using these resources in the coming weeks with my Y10’s and I am actually quite interested to see how they react and if they do have the desired effect. I will let you know Smile

Ooo! One last thing, which might be of interest, these lesson packages can be used to support learning outcomes for a number of vocational qualifications, such as the ‘Preparation for Working Life - Healthy Lifestyles’ from AQA.

Thanks for the complement Lil Miss Sunshine Very Happy Very Happy


Hi folks, I delivered the first of the lessons on alcohol that I said that we were going to do as a kind of lead in to ‘Alcohol Awareness Week’, which occurred between the 19th and 25th November. If you remember I was going to use some lesson material from ‘Teaching-Resources-UK’ to see if they had an impact on the engagement of my KS4 students

I have to say that the lesson went surprisingly well. The main focus of the lesson was why it is important to study Alcohol and looked at the physical, mental and social consequences of alcohol abuse and why it is important to study them.

Throughout the lesson we referred to the associated presentation, which started by informing the students about various research statistics concerning alcohol. This resulted in a lot of questions and discussion, (but curiously not much of the usual silliness!) particularly when we got to the section about the strongest/weakest drinks and the reasons why one drink affects you differently than another.

I always judge how well a lesson went by how the kids leave my classroom and I can say that as they did leave there was a lot of chat that seemed to start with “I didn’t know that…” followed by “No, me neither…” So I think it went well!

O.K. I’ve just done the second in the 6-lesson mini-scheme of work on alcohol using the lesson resources from ‘Teaching-Resources-UK’ that I have been posting on previously.

This lesson looked at the short-term physical consequences of alcohol abuse.

We first did a recap on some of the health aspects that we covered in the previous lesson. Using the associated presentation, we then moved onto how alcohol makes you feel after you have had a few drinks. To emphasize this some of the Y10’s took part in a little experiment. First they came up to the board and wrote, “Alcohol has no effect on the body” They were then spun round 10 times and then attempted to write the same sentence a second time. The results were hilarious.

They then took place in a second experiment. We went outside into the playground where I had set up a small obstacle course (nothing too dangerous I promise) wearing a pair of safety classes borrowed from the design & technology department that I had smeared with Vaseline, they had to walk around the course. Again we had a laugh, but I think it brought home to them how vulnerable you are when you are drunk.

It was another great lesson where they left chatting about what they had learnt, which is always a good thing I think.
