Ohio State Univ., Columbus. National Center for Research in Vocational Education.
Incorporating the use of simulators, multimedia systems, and range setups, this driver education curriculum guide provides basic guidelines for the instructor and suggestions for supplemental student activities under these three instructional phases. An introductory section outlines the standards for driver education programs established by the Ohio Department of Education and makes suggestions for involving parents and the community. The multimedia guide includes sixteen lessons and suggestions for developing multimedia materials. Each lesson is designed to supplement existing prepackaged programs in two Aetna Life and Casualty multimedia systems--Multimedia Series and IPDE Response Series. The second guide, which deals with the driving simulation phase, supplements the printed materials that accompany the simulation equipment and provides added learning, perceptual, and skill development activities. It includes thirteen lessons as well as suggestions for integrating the simulation phase into the driver education program. The third unit deals with the multiple-car range phase and discusses its definition and purposes, administrative considerations, facility design, and equipment. It contains eight lessons and supplementary activities. The format for each lesson plan in the entire guide provides some or all of the following information: related program(s) or film(s), task, objective, supplemental activities, teacher performances, and handouts. A concluding chart coordinates the three phases with classroom instruction. (YLB)
