Program Approach

Project TNT is composed of ten core lessons and two booster lessons, 40 to 50 minutes each. The ten core lessons are designed to occur over a two-week period, although they could be spread out over as long as four weeks on the condition that all lessons are taught. The booster lessons are designed to be taught one year after the core lessons. It is recommended that the booster lessons be delivered in a two-day sequence, although they could be taught one lesson per week.

The curriculum uses a wide variety of activities to encourage student involvement and participation. Activities include games, videos, role-plays, large and small group discussion, use of student worksheets, homework assignments, activism letter writing, and a videotaping project. The two-lesson booster program summarizes previously learned material and discusses how this material might be used in daily living.
