Title of Bulletin Board: Get on the Right Road of Life
Suggested Grade Level: 5-8
Materials: pictures, words, info boxes, poster, car cut outs, traffic light cut out
This bulletin board focuses on saying "No" to drugs, and seeing how advertisements try to make drinking and smoking look cool to teenagers. On the left side of the board are ways to handle peer pressure to do drugs or drink. On the right side of the board are pictures of people smoking and drinking questioning the reader to see if they think smoking or drinking is really cool. The theme of the board is staying on the right road of life so there are cars, stop lights and road signs to encourage teens to choose to be drug and alcohol free.
Prepare in advance for a possible pressure situation
• Think ahead and try to anticipate possible problems.
The primary way tobacco companies are able to target teens is through image. Teens are highly susceptible to marketing that gives them promises of being cool, sexy, alluring, or rugged. By creating these images and associating them with smoking, tobacco companies can convince teens that if they choose to smoke it will help them become more popular, fit in, look mature, or just be cool.
