Guide for Teacher Preparation in Driver Education. Driving School Edition.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (DOT), Washington, DC.
This guide provides operators of driving schools with a body of information and procedures that will enable them to develop programs capable of meeting the particular needs of their students, and capable of being administered within the resources available to them. The guide does not attempt to prescribe one specific instructional program but instead offers flexibility, together with details and resources to be used or supplemented. Part 1 discusses the characteristics of the highway transportation system, its relationship to accident causation, and the programs that exist to improve the effectiveness of the system. Part 2 deals with the components of the instructional system: (1) the system itself and its objectives; (2) the professional driving instructor; (3) curriculum development; and (4) curriculum administration. Part 3 offers a guide for 60 driving tasks in four general areas: basic controls, driving procedures, emergency procedures, and system maintenance. For each task suggested procedures and skills to be acquired, learning problems to be anticipated, hazards and laws involved, and suggested instructional aids and resource materials are included. The two appendixes consist of lists of addresses of suppliers of instructional aids and resource materials. (Author/BP)
