Description
Drugs figure prominently in S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders, a novel about friendship and belonging in the early 1960s. Alcohol, tobacco and caffeinated drinks are mentioned dozens of times, sometimes playing a pivotal role in the plotline, other times offering insight into the daily lives and world views of various characters. Members of both the underprivileged Greasers and over-privileged Socs use drugs, though each character’s relationship with drugs is unique. Different substances are used—or not used—for different reasons and in different ways. The Outsiders is ideal for helping Grade 8 students develop drug literacy. The story exposes young readers to a wealth of factors related to why people use drugs, and helps them identify and explore some of the potential benefits and consequences of our drug-related choices.

Description
Folk musician Sixto Rodriguez (aka Rodriguez, Jesus Rodriguez, and Sugar Man) is the sixth son of Mexican immigrants who moved to the American midwest for work in the 1920s. Many of Rodriguez’s songs, including “Cause” (the last song he ever recorded before being dropped from his record label in December 1971), reflect the struggles of the marginalized inner-city poor who often used alcohol and other drugs to cope with harsh conditions. This lesson plan invites students to listen to two of his songs and reflect on some of the themes that are talked about in the songs, including the challenges of immigrating to a new country as well as the use of drugs and alcohol.

Description
Coca has been used for thousands of years by indigenous peoples of the New World. The coca bush (from khoka, the Aymara word for tree) grows wild across western South America but was also one of the first domesticated plants in the western hemisphere. It was considered sacred and central to life among the people of the Andes Mountains. They believed the vitamin-rich leaves embodied the spirit of Mama Coca, the nurturing and protective force of nature, and they chewed the leaves to cope with the stresses of life. Today, coca continues to play an important role in the traditions and daily lives of many Andean people: • A man might offer coca leaves to the father of a potential bride • When a child is born, relatives and friends might celebrate by chewing coca leaves together • Coca-chewing plays a role in Quechua carnivals and celebrations • Aymara women chew coca as a source of inspiration for their weaving projects
