TEST BANK FOR DRUGS, BEHAVIOR,AND MODERN SOCIETY, 8TH EDITION, CHARLES F. LEVINTHAL, ISBN- 10: 0205959334,ISBN-13: 9780205959334, ISBN: 9780134003108

CHAPTER 1 DRUGS AND BEHAVIOR TODAY DISCUSSION QUESTIONS AND ASSIGNMENTS Assign students to view a broadcast of a sports event (appropriate for the season) on commercial TV. They should pay particular attention to any commercial related to the sale of beer. Which brands were advertised, and how many minutes during the entire game were devoted to such commercials? What message about the consumption of beer was conveyed? What associations were made with beerdrinking in the commercial? A discussion can be held on the students’ reaction to the segment. How would a younger person—say, fourteen to sixteen years old—react to it? (It may be easier to have the segments recorded and played on a DVD recorder in class or to simply have students use previewed clips from YouTube.) Assign students to keep a diary (with no personal identification) of their own consumption patterns of licit psychoactive drugs over a fourteen-day period (beginning on a Monday): specifically, their intake of caffeinated beverages, alcohol, and tobacco products. Were there any patterns of weekday versus weekend consumption, daytime versus nighttime, work time versus relaxation time? On an anonymous basis, have them record the circumstances under which these drugs were consumed. Were there any relationships between the consumption of these drugs and levels of fatigue, opportunities for socializing, or perceived stress? Have the respondents specify their age range (under eighteen, between eighteen and twenty-one, over twenty-one) and examine this information in light of reports of underage alcohol and tobacco purchases/intake. Have students discuss or write their remembrances of their high-school days with regard to drug-taking behavior. Was it cool or not cool to do drugs? Which drugs were cool and which ones were not? Was there a certain type of person who was known (or expected) to do drugs? Did the perception of drugtaking behavior change as students progressed from the sixth grade to the ninth grade and finally to their senior year? Has the pattern of drug-taking behavior changed since they have been in college for their younger siblings or acquaintances? Assign students to find an article in a newspaper or magazine relating to some form of licit or illicit drugtaking behavior. They can discuss it in class, write their reactions to the article, or make a presentation centered on the impact the article might have in their lives. Some examples include reports of recreational drugs that are ordinarily used on a medicinal basis (Ritalin, Adderall, OxyContin), steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs in sports, and economic issues related to prescription drugs among the elderly.
