This handbook includes skills and activities that can help make the efforts of any traffic safety student leader a success. The handbook is divided into four chapters and a resource section. Chapter I, Getting Started, tells how to develop a clear, factual message about safety. Chapter II, Setting Goals, explains how to develop the skills needed to establish goals and prepare action plans. Chapter III, Safety Activities, contains traffic safety ideas with insight into what has worked well for other groups (and what has failed). Chapter IV, Putting It All Together, explains how to pull all the parts of the project into an organized whole--a strong effort that will survive even after the student leader has graduated. The resources section, Resources for Student Leaders, contains reproducible handouts of background information, fact sheets or fun quizzes to distribute to the group, information that can be used in speeches or in articles for the school newspaper--and much more. At the back of the handbook additional resources are listed, such as organizations that can be contacted for additional information and an annotated film list.
