A new group at Meadowview Middle School is allowing seventh grade students to educate students at Meadowview Intermediate about tobacco and encourage them to remain tobacco free.
The Agents 4 Change members volunteered to be ATODA peer educators. They attended a two-day training last Spring where they developed skills in presenting information — in an informative and fun way — on the effects of smoking . This school year the students will be peer educators to both 4th and 5th graders. Next year we will add additional members and expand the topics taught in grade 5 as we continue teaching 4th grade about tobacco. Students use chants and props to engage younger students and to illustrate the negative effects of smoking.
