Ask, Listen, Learn

Yesterday, The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility (FAAR) launched a new, cutting-edge, digital program for teachers, parents, school counselors, nurses, and more! This comprehensive, seven-part animated series and corresponding lesson plans are designed to teach kids about what the brain does, what alcohol does to it, and what THAT does to them.

Ask, Listen, Learn’s new science-based content aligns with National Health Education Standards, Common Core State Standards, and Next Generation Science Standards, ensuring the tools connect with curriculum teachers are already using. This alignment also ensures the resources can be used in multiple classroom settings, such as science and health classes. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) reviewed the program content and found it to be consistent with currently available science.

The Project

We had the pleasure of working with both FAAR and several DC based school staff members to create the video below on the value of the Ask, Listen, Learn program.  The video discusses the need for Ask, Listen, Learn and examines how the program has helped to improve conversations between  students and their parents about alcohol.
