Keepin' It Real
About This Resource
Keepin' it REAL is a universal school-based substance use prevention program designed in multicultural settings for middle school students. The curriculum is taught by classroom teachers in 45-minute sessions once a week for ten weeks. Classroom sessions include group discussions, role playing, games, and five videos produced by youth, designed to teach students drug resistance skills. Our review of the program is limited to the curriculum as implemented by the original developers and does not reflect the alternative implementation model used by Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) America. (Source)
