This assignment will take some time to complete - so you need to be planning ahead and allow enough time to complete the assignment prior to its deadline.


  • Read the articles below on teen drug abuse. If you cannot access the links due to your school network security settings, there are pdfs attached to this Learning Block post.
  • Then create two original charts or graphs based on the information in the articles (each chart/graph should represent different information related to teen drug abuse).You may create the chart in Word, Publisher, or PowerPoint. If you use another program, make sure to ask me first to make sure I can open the program.
  • Also write a caption (75-100 words) explaining each graph and provide a citation for the articles.


The charts/graphs should be original work. (in other words don't get pictures off the Internet!).
Upload your charts into Moodle no later than Thursday at 11:55pm!
