THE DEVELOPMENT OF GUIDES FOR TEACHER PREPARATION IN DRIVER EDUCATION

This report describes the development of guides for teacher preparation in driver education. Two separate guides were prepared, one covering the preparation of secondary school driver education teachers and one covering preparation of professional driving school instructors. The development of both teacher preparation guides involved a four step process. The first step, Analysis of Instructional Requirements entailed an analysis of both the highway transportation system and the instructional system, public and private, to identify responsibilities imposed upon the driver education teacher. This led to the second step, Establishment of Instructional Objectives, in which the performances, skills, and knowledges required of the driver educator in meeting his instructional requirements were identified. The third step involved the actual Preparation of Guides, that is, the preparation and assembly of materials needed to fulfill the instructional objectives. The final step, Evaluation, involved a large scale review of the guides by representatives of the secondary school and professional driving school communities.
