Pedal On! Mini-Units and Learning Activities on Bicycling for Grades 9 through 12.
Finn, 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 bicycling for grades 9-12. It contains forty-four learning activities grouped into eight 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 bicycles; the rest are as follows: identifying and promoting safe bicycle practices, investigating why many people ride dangerously, studying how to buy a bicycle, learning to maintain a bicycle, identifying when and how to seek redress of grievances, identifying and promoting bicycle facilities, and engaging in bicycle projects. 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 incorporating the units into other subject areas, and masters 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)
