Since 2002, Scholastic Inc. has partnered with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to create Heads Up: Real News About Drugs and Your Body. This science-based education series provides teachers and students with innovative materials about the effects of drugs and drug abuse on the brain and body. New teen articles, classroom lessons, and student worksheets are created and distributed every school year through Scholastic’s in-school magazines as well as Heads Up teacher and student websites. Heads Up also produces poster/teaching guides as well as online classroom interactives. Annual compilations of all magazine materials, as well as posters, some with teaching guides, and some in Spanish, are available for ordering or downloading, free of charge.
