THE TOTALLY DISGUSTING TOBACCO GROSS OUT VIDEO
True to its title, this program aims to gross out its viewers with a graphic look at the destructiveness of tobacco products. The story revolves around Josie, a student who is preparing a video on the dangers of tobacco use for a health class assignment, despite the disbelieving attitude from her peers. Images she employs in her presentation include clips of hairy tongues, yellow teeth, dripping phlegm, oozing tar, diseased lungs, laryngectomies, cancerous tumors, and more. These visuals are not for the fainthearted and will linger long in students’ memories. The disc includes a pdf teacher’s guide with a program summary, activities, fact sheets, Web resources, and a bibliography. Grades 5–9. Closed captioned. Color. 18 minutes.
