Customize Teen Driving Topics
Targeting Learning Activities
You know how best to reach the teen learners with whom you interact and how to customize learning activities for your target audiences. As you may know a “student-centered approach” usually works best because it meets student needs, abilities, interests, and learning styles.
The driving environment within which teens interact also has its own personality, norms, culture, and set of positives and negatives. Teens’ experiences are very real to them. Here’s an exercise that can get the conversation started in classrooms. It will elicit what your students have observed or may have experienced on the roads in their community. Try to infuse as much of their driving-specific experience as possible into the classroom. You may notice that your students’ driving experiences may differ based on where they live: rural, suburban, or urban.
