Above the Influence

This is the official website of Above the Influence. This site and many of the Above the Influence ads that you see were originally created as a part of the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign, a program of the Office of National Drug Control Policy. Above the Influence has since transitioned away from federal oversight (as of March 2014), and is now a program of the non-profit Partnership for Drug-Free Kids. The campaign was, and continues to be inspired by what teens have told us about their lives, and how they deal with the influences that shape their decisions.

Content Trailers

Content Trailers can be one of those tools that establish a strong visual point for students to grasp while they begin to inquire.

So what is a Content Trailer? Very simply, a Content Trailer is a short, 2- to 3-minute, media-rich experience from which a point of inquiry can begin. The vehicle is unimportant in the relationship to the concept. Providing students with the images and sounds that can be attached to the textual information that they will be exploring can provide a profound shift in the way learning is engaged. Content Trailers can be one tool to help the process of inquiry begin.
