Description
This iMinds lesson is designed to be a part of a larger book study. It seeks to help students build drug literacy as they consider the psychoactive properties of one of our favourite drugs – chocolate. Roald Dahl provides rich content for exploring the positive attractiveness, but also the destructive potential, of psychoactive substances. Exploring this ambivalence with respect to chocolate provides a relatively uncharged setting to learn an important framework for understanding other psychoactive drugs.
