Expanded News for your classroom Episode #2E

Posted in Uncategorized by milestogodrugeducation on September 16th, 2010

Welcome to News For Your Classroom Expanded Edition Podcast where we simplify a complex subject. Weekly, we simplify scientific news reports & studies about drugs, drug abuse & prevention on our twitter news page which is then turned into a podcast/blog discussion-available on our website, itunes and podbean. Our expanded subscription includes tweets not in our free service + extra questions, links, & discussion from Kelly & Jonathan about the subject. It’s like a mini lecture for your class.
