is the high-school component to Project Northland, Hazelden's evidence-based alcohol prevention program.
Class Action looks at the real-world social and legal consequences involving teens and alcohol. Teens are divided into six to eight Class Action legal teams to prepare and present hypothetical civil cases in which someone has been harmed as a result of underage drinking. Each team is given a casebook that contains the facts of their case, affidavits and depositions, and all legal and other information needed to argue their case. These cases include:
- Drinking and Driving on Trial
- Fetal Alcohol Syndrome on Trial
- Drinking and Violence on Trial
- Date Rape on Trial
- Drinking and Vandalism on Trial
- School Alcohol Policies on Trial
- Drinking and Hazing on Trial
- Binge-Drinking on Trial
This manual includes specific outlines for implementing the Class Action
curriculum, as well as background information and everything else teachers need to skillfully guide teens in developing and presenting solid, dynamic legal cases.
The expanded and newly revised edition includes updated statistics, a new user-friendly format, and two new hypothetical civil cases in which someone has been harmed as a result of underage drinking. The second edition of Class Action maintains fidelity to the original and the powerful messages presented.
Included with the manual is a CD-ROM of reproducible material that includes parent materials in English and Spanish, jury ballots, Prep Sheets and Strategy Sheets for each case.
