Young road users are at high risk for devastating injuries and death caused by hazardous behaviour on our nations roads. Australia has sought to educate the general public as well as target high-risk groups such as the adolescent-early adult age group. Harm minimisation and punitive approaches are providing increasingly effective measures to address this ongoing problem.
This unit of work in physics was implemented with my Year 10 students prior to them taking part in the road safety initiative "Keys Please" in Victoria, Australia for early driver education. It is broadly applicable with any adolescent group and can be fine-tuned for use as required.
Included in this package:
One Powerpoint display covering theory and structure for the unit, including an assessment task for film production (17 slides)
Four-page document for a class investigative activity.
One assesment rubric for the film assessment task (one page)
