California Guide for Pedestrian Safety Education. Volumes I-III.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
This guide is designed to serve as the basis for a pedestrian safety education program for pupils in kindergarten through grade two. The basic printed materials for use in the program are provided in three volumes, each of which is intended for a different audience. Volume I, directed to school administrators and teachers, contains information for use in solving pedestrian safety problems that commonly occur at or near schools. Volume II, a parents' guide, is designed to increase parents' awareness of the need for pedestrian safety education and to provide them information about the related instruction being offered to their children at school. The volume is divided into 17 short lessons that cover instruction on topics such as using crosswalks in a safe manner; looking and listening for approaching traffic before crossing streets, driveways, alleys, and the like; obeying traffic signs and signals; and walking safely along sidewalks and roadways. Volume III, teachers' and administrators' guide, includes outlines of 17 lessons that deal with those behaviors most commonly linked to pedestrian accidents involving young children. Each lesson focuses on one or more basic concepts or behaviors, beginning with the most basic and progressing to the most complex. For each lesson, the following information is provided in tabular form: lesson emphasis, time needed to conduct each lesson, materials and equipment, expected child outcomes and activities for teachers, parents, and children.
