To help advance health equity and facilitate the reduction of tobacco-related health disparities for all people, FDA recently launched a Spanish-language version of the Vaping Prevention and Education Resource Center. This resource center is an online hub with free science-based, standards-mapped lesson plans and materials teachers can use to help students understand the dangers associated with e-cigarette use and nicotine addiction.
All content on the resource center is free, easy to navigate, and optimized for different audiences. Teachers can use these tools to promote learning and initiate open conversations with youth about the risks of e-cigarette use. Additionally, there are also materials for parents and teens, including blogs, videos, and fact sheets.
In addition to these new Spanish language resources, FDA also created three English-language Kahoot! online learning quizzes to accompany the lesson plans and activity sheets in the resource center. These quizzes can be completed by students in the classroom or at home and will provide an additional way for educators to assess students’ comprehension of the lesson plan content. Spanish-language Kahoot! quizzes are also in development, with anticipated completion in the near future.
