A ninth-grade alcohol education program aimed at reducing drinking, drinking and driving, and riding with a drinking driver was developed on the basis of problem behavior theory, social cognitive theory and role theory.
In Year 1 the program was taught by Social Studies teachers to half of the eighty-four ninth-grade classes in all nine junior high schools in a single school system; the other half served as controls.
In Year 2 the program was taught to the ninth-grade students of the same school system by English teachers.
Students' knowledge, skills and practices were measured before and four-six weeks and one year after the program.
Results indicated significant increases in knowledge and perceived ability to resist pressures to drink among experimental students.
