The resources, called Rx for Understanding, include 10 cross-curricular lessons for middle school students.  Aligned with the National Health Education Standards and Common Core State Standards, the lessons aim to equip students with the understanding and decision-making skills they need to recognize and avoid the dangers of misusing and abusing prescription drugs.

Resources will be available free of charge, in print and online, to educators upon its launch on June 30  during the NEA Annual Meeting and Representative Assembly in Washington, D.C.
