Drivers Education Set
Aligned to California driving standards, this 3 unit elective from Starline Press may be the perfect ticket (to avoid tickets!) for your homeschool teenager. Beginning with a pretest to help students recognize there is more to safe driving than just getting behind the wheel and pushing the accelerator, this set covers what is required to drive in CA, road signs, rules of the road, parking skills, lane usage, adjusting seat/seat belts, importance of assessing traffic and weather conditions, passing techniques, defensive driving techniques, driving emergencies, the dangers of alcohol and emotional driving, vehicle maintenance and much more. While aligned to CA driving requirements, other homeschool families may find the information presented to be beneficial for their "soon-to-be" drivers as a way to prepare for their own state approved driving courses. Fill in the blank and multiple choice questions, unit tests, puzzles and research projects are well designed to reinforce and assess learning. Books contain low resolution graphics and 40-59 pgs, pb. Available only in complete sets with answer/test keys. ~ Deanne
Students learn the rules of the road, seeing and communicating. They study speed, space, sharing the road, and emergencies, avoiding collisions, and safety devices. They learn about the dangers of alcohol, insurance, and the point system.
We have received many customer requests for Starline Press Curriculum and after taking time to review it is easy to see why! Self-directed with character quality traits infused, this independent learning curriculum allows students to learn at their own pace (which may vary subject to subject) while maintaining alignment to California state standards. Please see publisher website for CA state standards correlation. Both objective and subjective assessment methods are used to ensure mastery of material. Challenging activities are included in each unit to help develop critical thinking skills. Each subject area is complete and easy to use. Each grade level subject contains 10-12 units (booklets) per year, with units averaging 24-60 pgs each.
Consumable worktexts are colorfully illustrated soft covers, although newer printings are more like booklets and do not have the perfect binding and glossy covers. Available only in complete sets which include answer and test keys. Each unit focuses on one character quality, for example: being flexible, ambitious, creative, vigilant, or self-controlled. ~ Deanne
