Getting There! Mini-Units and Learning Activities on Transportation Safety for Grades 9 through 12.
Wolff, Peter; And Others
One of a series of eleven curriculum manuals which cover the four transportation topics of public transportation, transportation and the environment, transportation safety, and bicycles for elementary, secondary, and adult levels, this manual covers the transportation safety topic for grades 9-12. It contains forty-three learning activities grouped into eleven mini-units. Each mini-unit consists of a lesson plan component and an individual learning activities component. The first mini-unit provides a survey of issues related to transportation safety; the rest are as follows: understanding driving habits, learning about safety belts, drinking and driving, buying a car, maintaining a car and coping with breakdowns, promoting transportation safety through consumer/citizen action, learning how to be safe while boating, learning about emergency vehicles, being safe on various vehicles, and doing supplementary research on transportation safety. A final section offers additional activities that may be used to evaluate or supplement evaluation of an activity or mini-unit. Also included are references for further study resources, suggestions for integrating units with other subjects in the curriculum, and for reproduction of role profiles, game boards, maps, and other distributable materials. (A curriculum guide, CE 014 028, is also available for use with the manuals.) (TA)
