Transportation Consumer Education Curriculum Guide.
Finn, Peter; And Others
Materials in this curriculum guide represent a selection of the major transportation consumer topics and ideas and are designed to set the stage for more intensive transportation consumer education curriculum development and teacher efforts. (Eleven manuals covering the four transportation topics of public transportation, transportation and the environment, transportation safety, and bicycles for elementary, secondary, and adult levels are available separately and may be used in conjunction with this curriculum guide or independently of it.) The guide consists of three major sections: introduction, curriculum units, and resources. The introduction presents rationale for developing transportation consumer education curricula and conceptualizes the complex field of use and purchase of transportation goods and services. A series of twenty units on key transportation consumer education topics are presented. Each contains rationale, activities index (objectives, suggested classroom activities, and suggested teaching methods), and a bibliography of teacher, student, and audiovisual materials. The resources section contains instructions for developing transportation consumer education curriculum units; discussion of appropriate teaching methods; a cross-reference of transportation topics and other subject areas; and miscellaneous bibliographies.
