About the Collaboration:
Since 2002, NIDA and Scholastic Inc. have partnered to create Heads Up: Real News About Drugs and Your Body. This and science-based education series provides teachers and students with innovative resources about the effects of drugs, drug use, and addiction on the brain and body. New teen articles, classroom lessons, and student worksheets are created and distributed every school year through Scholastic’s in-school magazines, as well as Heads Up teacher and student websites. Heads Up also produces poster/teaching guides, as well as online interactives. Annual compilations of student articles and teacher lesson plans, as well as posters, some with teaching guides, and some in Spanish, are available for downloading, free of charge.
