Highway Traffic Accident Investigation and Reporting: Basic Course--Instructor's Lesson Plans.
Daugherty, Ronald D., Ed.; And Others
These 35 extensive lesson plans for the instructor in a basic training program for accident investigation are intended for use with a student study guide and a manual for administrators and planners, available as VT 019 456 and VT 019 455, respectively. As part of a curriculum package developed by the Center for Vocational and Technical Education after a nationwide survey, this document contains a rationale detailing the needs for accident investigation technicians, an instructional outline, a discussion of facilities and equipment required, and a course description. Included in this teaching guide, which is 3-hole punched for easy insertion into a notebook, are a bibliography, resource lists, and appended resource materials. Intended to develop entry-level skills and to train technicians to identify, collect, record, and report data regarding the driver, vehicle, and environment as they relate to the pre-crash, crash, and post-crash phases of an accident, the course consists of five flexible instructional units. Each lesson plan provides teaching procedures, behavioral objectives, and suggested learning activities. A related document is available in a previous issue as ED 069 848. (AG)
