EDUCATORS

Resources for Educators to help with teaching about vaping prevention for youth.

TUPE Curriculum

Curriculum PRE-Survey – Student

Curriculum POST-Survey – Student

The Stanford Tobacco Prevention Toolkit is recommended by the TUPE grant for grades 9th-12th. The CATCH My Breath Curriculum is recommended by the TUPE Grant for grades 5th-8th. CATCH My Breath Videos were purchased for grades 6th and 7th/8th. Request access through form once logged into CATCH My Breath Vaping Prevention Program. However, all resources in both programs do have information for 6th-12th grades and can be used as needed.

Please do the Pre Survey with students prior to implementing the curriculum in the classroom. Follow-up with the Post Survey with students once lessons are completed.

You and Me, Together Vape-Free Curriculum

6 Lessons, each providing activites, online quiz games and worksheets in addition to presentations, resources, and other materials aimed at preventing and reducing e-cigarette use. 

Vaping Prevention Online Course

Curriculum for 9-12th Grade.

To address the current needs of educators to provide curriculum remotely to their students, we have created the Vaping Prevention: A Remote-Learning Curriculum that addresses the health risks of using e-cigarettes/vapes, including JUUL and Puff Bar; the increased risk of severe COVID-19 infection for e-cigarette/vape users; and marketing tactics used by nicotine companies to target youth. We also include an accompanying student assignment.

The Stanford Cannabis/Marijuana Awareness & Prevention Toolkit

Theory-based and evidence-informed resources created by educators, parents, and researchers aimed at preventing middle and high school students’ use of cannabis/marijuana.

CATCH My Breath

This evidence-based program was shown to substantially reduce students’ likelihood of vaping in the year following program implementation. Students also showed a significant increase in knowledge of the dangers of vaping and an increase in positive perceptions about choosing a vape-free lifestyle.
