Wisconsin Bicycle Driver Training Course. Instructor's Handbook.
Thompson, Ronald L.
Designed for use by trained and certified instructors of a voluntary bicycle driver training course, this handbook provides materials for eight one-hour sessions for beginners or experienced bicyclists. Part 1, Instructor's Guidelines, discusses course objectives, organization, and content; instruction methods; and audiovisual materials. Part 2 contains the course outline for the eight sessions: course orientation; rights and rules; bicycle types, selection, and equipment; operation skills; hazard identification and avoidance; maintenance; bikeways and first aid; and final examination. Each section includes material/text with instructor hints, behavioral objectives, homework assignments, references to optional films, and optional or required "on-the-bicycle" and "on-the-road" experience or skill tests. The final examination and answer sheet are provided. Appendixes, amounting to approximately one-half of the handbook, include the companion student workbook with all exercises and answers, extensive volunteer instructor guidelines, and a dictionary of cycling terms. Under resources are found a listing of books, pamphlets, and manuals; an annotated bibliography of bicycle safety films; and lists of film vendors, books, periodicals, and Wisconsin bicycle clubs.
