UPDATED/MODIFIED SYLLABUS DUE TO COVID19 AND ONLINE LEARNING 2020
TEXT: Students will use the VDOE (Virginia Department of Education) issued Teen Driving Module Books, as well as Powerpoints from VDOE to be used in conjunction with the workbooks.
At this time, traditional physical education will not be offered , BUT students will be asked to perform various physical activities at home and log their hours. Logs will be turned in weekly.
Classroom instruction includes driver’s education. Classroom and in-car driver education focus on safe driving attitudes, time, space, and distance perception, skill development, and recognition of appropriate response to hazards in the ever-changing driving environment. Students apply basic driving skills in low-to-moderate traffic situations and progress to demonstration of skill proficiency in more complex traffic situations. Throughout the course, emphasis is placed on extensive supervised practice with a licensed parent or guardian to develop precision in the use of skills, processes, and responsibilities.
*In Driver’s Education students will be introduced to the requirements of becoming a safe and responsible driver.
*In Physical Education, students will participate in various types of individual physical activities and recreational activities in order to understand the importance of lifelong participation in physical activity.
