Content Source:

Stanford Medicine
Type: Lesson/Unit Plan


This resource is a lesson plan developed by Sanford Medicine-Tobacco Prevention Toolkit. The lesson plan objective is to provide an understanding of the known health risks associated with smokeless tobacco use. Many adolescents may not fully understand the risks of smokeless tobacco use and believe that it is harmless. 

The included PowerPoint provides an overview of what students should know about smokeless tobacco, including why youth find them appealing, marketing tactics being used, what we know about the health effects of smokeless tobacco use. At the end of the PowerPoint are some debriefing activities that you can use with the students.

This alignment results from the ALEX Health/PE COS Resource Alignment Summit.
