We are looking for science teachers who are willing to be interviewed for inclusion in a book for parents about the science of how alcohol affects teens’ bodies. Teachers will be asked for advice on how parents can explain and engage teens in science. If you are also, or have been, a parent of a middle school student, that would be a plus.
The book, tentatively titled Delaying that First Drink, will be published this fall by AAAS. I am doing the research and writing it. The book will accompany a series of lesson plans for middle school students on the science of how alcohol. The science portion is centered around body systems and how they are interrelated and affected by alcohol, as well as new brain research showing that kids’ brains are affected differently than adults’ by drinking.
