The Brain: Understanding Neurobiology Through the Study of Addiction

We designed this curriculum supplement to complement existing life science curricula at both the state and local levels and to be consistent with the National Science Education Standards.1 It was developed and tested by a team composed of teachers from across the country, scientists, medical experts, and other professionals with relevant subject-area expertise from institutes and medical schools across the country, an NIH scientist or representative from each of the 25 institutes, and curriculum design experts from Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) and Videodiscovery. The authors incorporated real scientific data and actual case studies into classroom activities. A three-year development process included geographically dispersed field tests by teachers and students.
