Lesson materials now available on Google Drive!
In order to further support in-person, virtual, and hybrid learning environments, all our lesson materials—manuals, handouts, video launches, homework, quizzes, supplements, and Google Slides for each lesson (brand new to the curriculum!)—are now available on Google Drive. We hope this “one-stop-shop” will help to maximize organization and delivery for all our program partners.
Material is housed in Teacher Materials and Student Materials folders for each lesson. All elements are available to view, download, and copy to your own Google Drive account. The new slide decks can also be saved in PowerPoint format if that is your preference for presenting the material.
Launch Project ALERT's Google Drive
Although different classrooms—virtual and otherwise—will have varied needs, we have not veered much from the original content of the lessons. You are welcome to use and edit the materials as needed, keeping fidelity of the curriculum front and center. For example, some teachers have added an icebreaker at the beginning of the lesson or brief stretching breaks at opportune times during delivery. Additions like these do not affect fidelity, and we must adapt to hybrid learning environments.
We're excited to release this new tool to help you stay organized and to take advantage of the different ways Project ALERT can be delivered. Let us know how it goes!
Join Us for An Exciting Multi-Year Study Opportunity!
A new Project ALERT-GTO (Getting to Outcomes) study presents a rare opportunity to help boost efforts to keep youth healthy and drug-free. ALERT is joining forces with GTO, an evidence-based implementation framework that provides training and ongoing coaching to help organizations launch programs more effectively and get their desired outcomes. If you have been looking to implement a program like ALERT but have not had the resources to jump start it, this study may be able to help!
RAND Corporation, the nonprofit institution that runs Project ALERT and GTO, is looking to partner with a limited number of US school districts beginning in the 2021-22 school year. Teachers who participate in the study will receive stipends to participate in trainings and free access to Project ALERT and GTO materials, as well as enhanced support to implement ALERT effectively. Participating schools will receive an honoriarum for their support of the study while the district will receive assistance in sustaining the program when the study ends.
