Building Character and Teaching LifeSkills FreeWay Drug Prevention Lesson Plans and Curriculum

Faculty In-Service WorkshopsThe FreeWay Faculty In-Service Workshop is designed to augment the professional skills of public school classroom teachers (K-12) by assisting them with their task of training students for "safe and drug-free" living.

The workshop will introduce educators to the eight basic FreeWay life skills and explain in detail the concept of the prevention of drug use and violence through life skills training.

Participants will focus on one of these two curriculum packages available from FreeWay:

  • "FreeWay" K-12 drug prevention curriculum (6 volumes: grades K-1, 2-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12, plus a resource book)

  • "PeaceMakers" K-12 violence prevention curriculum (3 volumes: grades K-3, 4-8, 9-12)

The workshop also will focus on the results of scientific studies which have proven that both curriculum packages are "highly effective" in preventing drug use or violence among students. It will explore what works, how it works, and why.

Facilitators are screened and trained FreeWay educators with experience teaching in school classrooms and leading seminars/workshops for parent and adult groups. These facilitators will explain the FreeWay curriculum materials, the educational theory of prevention and share first-hand classroom experiences in life skills education.

FreeWay Faculty In-Service Workshops are available for either a 2-hour or a 3-hour time period. The costs of the workshops include: $100 per hour honorarium for the facilitator, round-trip travel expenses from St. Louis, including mileage (or airfare), meals, and over-night accommodations, if necessary, and handout materials at $5 per participant.
