Scenario Activities

DARTA has developed a series of scenarios and accompanying activities for teachers to use as part of a ‘strength-based approach’ to drug education. These scenarios have been designed to introduce and/or strengthen a range of skills including:

  • identifying risks
  • decision-making
  • assertiveness and refusal skills
  • planning
  • communication
  • problem solving
  • critical thinking
  • challenging misinformation
  • help-seeking
  • evaluating consequences

Basic background information, as well as key messages relating to the different substances dealt with in the scenarios has also been included for teachers to help stimulate classroom discussion. This has been provided to improve students’ knowledge about different drugs and their related harms, as well as challenge and correct any misinformation that young people may believe to be true.

The scenarios deal with the following drugs and/or drug issues:
