Driver Education for New York City High Schools: Curriculum Bulletin: 1973-1974 Series, No. 4.
Barger, Clarence G.
The New York City revised curriculum bulletin is designed to offer maximum assistance (1) to high school administrators to plan and establish a State-approved driver education program and (2) to instructors who will teach in such programs. Chapter 1, on organizing driver education programs, discusses in detail the types of instruction in day secondary schools, qualifications for instructors, establishing a driver education program, practice driving equipment, evaluation, other driver education programs, and scheduling. Chapter 2, on teaching driver education, discusses in detail classroom teaching and practice driving instruction; provides instructional guides for 23 units (each unit presents the topic, recommended time, objectives, a synopsis, a list of teaching highlights, and a list of student activities); lists 23 practice driving instructional guides specifying instructional areas, teacher orientation, and student objectives; discusses teaching with simulators; and gives suggestions for motorcycle and motor bike driver education. The 10 appendixes contain information on the New York State Motor Vehicle and Traffic Laws; New York City traffic regulations; a glossary; samples of official New York State forms; a list of teaching, safety, and test equipment dealers; additional resources; and a list of sources of driver education films and filmstrips with corresponding code numbers.
