The Nevada County Superintendent of Schools TUPE Program will train and support all 6th grade teachers to implement the Model Smoking Prevention Program (MSPP) as well as additional anti-smoking activities and lessons.
The Model Smoking Prevention Program (MSPP) is an evidence-based, comprehensive program proven to help prevent kids from using cigarettes, tobacco, and alternative tobacco products such as snuff, e-cigarettes, and hookahs.
MSPP consists of 8, 50-minute lessons.
Lesson activities include:
- Cooperative Learning Groups
- Group Discussions
- Role Plays
- Goal Setting
In addition, MSPP uses same-age peer leaders to facilitate many of the classroom activities.
The positive influence of peer leaders serves as a proactive prevention tool to help offset the peer pressure students face to start using tobacco and alternative tobacco products.
