NOTE: These lesson plans provide 16 days of classroom work – 32 hours when
classes are two hours long each. This is two more than the required 30, but allows a
make up day for those who must miss one day. You may stop at day 15 or 16,
depending on what your district will allow.

Because new material is presented in a PowerPoint format, students attending an
extra class to make up a missed lesson may be provided with a computer and the
PowerPoint of the material she missed.

DRIVER TRAINING COURSES. In conjunction with its supervision of traffic
on public highways, the Idaho transportation department is directed to
cooperate with the state board of education in its establishment of
driver training courses in the public schools of the state.

33-1702.
MINIMUM STANDARDS FOR COURSES. (1) The state board of education
and the transportation department shall cooperate in establishing, and
amending as need arises, minimum standards for driver training programs
reimbursable hereunder. (2) Such standards shall require not less than
thirty (30) clock hours of classroom instruction, six (6) hours
observation time in a driver training car, and six (6) hours behind-
the-wheel practice driving; but the state board of education may allow
in lieu of not more than three (3) hours of such practice driving, such
equivalent thereof in simulated practice driving as the said board may
have, by uniform rules, approved. The board shall adopt standards
necessary to allow completion of the thirty (30) clock hours of
required classroom instruction through an approved correspondence
course.

33-1703.
ELIGIBLE PUPILS -- TIME COURSES OFFERED. Reimbursable programs
shall be open to all residents of the state, of the ages fourteen and
one-half (14 1/2) through twenty-one (21) years whether or not they are
enrolled in a public, private or parochial school. Residents living
within any school district operating, or participating in the operation
of, an authorized driver training program, shall enroll, when possible,
in the training program offered in the school district of residence.
    No charge or enrollment fee, not required to be paid by public
school pupils for driver training, shall be required to be paid by
residents not then attending public schools.
    Driver training programs herein authorized may, at the discretion
of the board of trustees, be conducted after school hours, or on
Saturdays, or during regular school vacations.

33-1704.
AUTHORIZATION TO OPERATE PROGRAM. The board of trustees of any
school district proposing to establish an authorized driver training
program shall, as a condition of reimbursement for costs incurred in
the driver training program, not less than thirty (30) days prior to
the proposed commencement thereof, submit to the state department of
education the plan therefor. The state department shall approve or
disapprove such plan within ten (10) days after receipt from the
district of the proposal, and shall give written notice of its decision
to said board of trustees. Any school district which operates any
driver training program without prior written approval from the state
department of education shall not be entitled to reimbursement, as
provided in section 33-1707, Idaho Code, for the unapproved plan, or
the unapproved portions of any plan.

districts may, by written agreement, offer a driver training program
jointly. In such case the plan shall be submitted by one (1) of the
districts which shall be designated as the operating district; and upon
approval of the plan, all reports and apportionments of funds shall be
made as though the designated operating district were the only district
operating the program. The absence of a written agreement, however,
shall not limit the board of trustees of any school district in
accepting enrollments in its driver training program on the part of
residents in neighboring school districts.

33-1706.
REPORTS TO STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION. Each school district
which has completed a course or courses in driver training, whether
approved for reimbursement or not, shall submit a report to the state
department of education not later than forty-five (45) days after
completion of the course or courses, showing (1) the number of pupils
who enrolled; (2) the number of pupils who completed the course; and
(3) the total cost of operation of the program, together with such
other information as the state board may require. Failure to submit
reports to the state department of education shall be cause for the
state department of education to disallow reimbursement even for prior
approved driver training program.

data provided by the school district, as required by section 33-1706,
Idaho Code, the state department of education shall compute the average
of the number of pupils enrolling in the course and those completing
the same, and determine for such average number, the per-pupil cost
thereof.
    The amount due the district from the driver training fund in the
state treasury shall be the total cost of operating the program, or the
average of the number enrolling in the course and those completing the
same, multiplied by one hundred twenty-five dollars ($125), whichever
is the lesser.
     On or before the fifteenth day of February, and the thirtieth day
of June, and the fifteenth day of September in each year, the state
superintendent of public instruction shall certify to the state

            o Demonstrate lane changes in heavy traffic.
     Rolling Chair Lane Changes
            o If a chair on wheels is available, have one student sit in the chair with a
               simulator steering wheel. Have another student stand behind the chair and
               push the chair in response to how the “driver” turns the wheel when
               changing lanes. The goal is to do it smoothly.
            o If a second chair with wheels is available, have a passenger sit in that chair
               next to the driver. Then two students push the chairs in response to the
               “driver” turning the wheel. Have the passenger close his/her eyes. If it’s
               done right, a passenger could have his/her eyes closed and not feel the lane
               change.
            o This activity will never be as smooth as a real lane change, and might be a
               bit silly, but it just might be something they remember.

              flashing lights, they should be excused from the room. (5 minutes)
            o Ask students what they saw. What is the message?
            o There are some groups of people who feel strongly that some modern
              technologies, especially video, is creating medical conditions like ADD.
              What do you think?
            o If this is true, how does it affect driving skills?
            o Fact: the ability to process information improves with experience. If we
              watched that video again, would you see things you missed before? Does
              that happen when you watch a movie over and over?
            o With driving, it’s important to be able to recognize and process the most
              dangerous information first.
            o Fact: there are drivers out there with medical conditions that prevents
              them from processing information as fast as you or I. How should we
              drive knowing that? Maybe you have difficulty processing information
              quickly. How should you drive to adapt?

                          GAMES AND ACTIVITIES




SIGNO
Directions: pass out one “Signo” sheet to each student. Use pennies, beans,

etc. to play. Call out a sign. Students place the penny or bean on that sign if

they have it. Once they have five in a row they call out “SIGNO!”.




                                                                              41
Go Fish in the Road!

Directions: Put students in groups of 3-5. Give each group about 60 cards. A
dealer deals five cards to each player. Students try to gather four (4) of
each card. A player who has at least one card of a sign type (Right Lane Ends
sign, for example) may ask another student for all of his/her “Right Lane
End” signs. If he is successful, she can continue until someone says “No,”
they don’t have any cards of that type.

Once four cards of the same type are collected, they are turned face up.

The game continues until either someone has no cards in their hand or the
stock runs out. The winner is the one with the most “books” (collections of
four).




   Make four copies of the following page for each group of 3-5 students.




                                                                              42
