The Development of Guides for Teacher Preparation in Driver Education.
McKnight, A. James; And Others
This paper describes the Human Resources Research Organization's (HummRRO) development of teacher preparation guides for driver education (one for secondary school teachers and the other for commercial instructors) through the use of a process that has been commonly utilized by educational technologists in preparing instructional programs and materials. It is noted that the guides were developed to provide institutions preparing driver educators with a body of information that would enable them to develop programs that could meet the needs of their students and that could be administered within the teacher preparation resources available to them. HummRRO's development of the guides is described under the headings (1) Analysis of Instructional Requirements (Survey of Teacher Preparation Standards, Analysis of Driver Educator Functions, Curriculum Development, Curriculum Administration); (2) Establishment of Instructional Objectives (The Driver Educator as a Driver, Survey of Driver Educators); (3) Determination of Guide Content (Sources of Information, Organization of Guide Content); (4) Evaluation; and (5) Concluding Statement. A diagrammatic model for development of the guides is included along with three appendixes entitled Components of the Highway Transportation System, Guide for Teacher Preparation in Driver Education Outline, and Sample of Driving Task from Part III: "Passing."
