California Guide to Traffic Safety Education.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
The guide proposes an elementary through high school program encompassing many aspects of traffic safety. Chapter 1 presents definitions, instructional goals, behavioral objectives, and K-6 traffic safety concepts coupled with student performance indicators. Various elements of program administration are covered in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 includes concept and student performance indicator charts for a traffic safety curriculum designed to inculcate desirable driver behavior in students. The five program sections are: the driving task, the readiness task, highway emergencies, transportation systems, and improvement tasks. Use of instructional media and programs for the handicapped are described in the next two chapters. Chapter 6 outlines motorcycle safety education and contains a chart of concepts and student performance indicators for motorcycle operation. Similar charts are included for Chapters 7 and 8 which deal with alcohol and drug abuse and air pollution. Appended are: a list of events in the history of vehicular traffic, a chart of action words and phrases for use in driver training (grouped by concept with description or activity and teaching tips), California Laws and Regulations affecting traffic safety education, and forms for use in driver education. A 124-item reference list of books and audiovisual materials concludes the guide. (Author/MS)
