1 Identifying Modules Romona Cook Donald Brown Revised 3/6/2014

2 Program of Organized Instruction for Driver Education and Traffic Safety (POI)

3 It is the TEA approved Program of Instruction (Essential Knowledge and Skills) for teenage driver education and traffic safety programs as prescribed by the Texas Education Code and Texas Administrative Code.

4 Each phase of Driver Education Classroom / Driving / Observation is required to follow the Program of Instruction (Essential Knowledge and Skills)

5 Based on Risk Reduction Legally Knowledge Understanding Skills Experiences Responsibility Planning Consequences Privilege Obligations

6 Why follow the POI???? Developed by experts. Comprehensive. Why recreate the wheel? Approved by governing agency. Schools and instructors need to have a written program and maintain records (lesson plans, tests,. evaluation scores, etc.). to prove the program is following the state POI guidelines It is the first line of liability protection.

7 CLOSE UP LOOK AT THE POI

8 POI Topics Module One: Traffic Laws Module Two: Driver Preparation Module Three: Vehicle Movements Module Four: Driver Readiness Module Five: Risk Reduction (Management) Module Six: Environmental Factors

9 POI Topics Cont. Module Seven: Distractions Module Eight: Alcohol and Other Drugs Module Nine: Adverse Conditions Module Ten: Vehicle Requirements Module Eleven: Consumer Responsibility Module Twelve: Driver Responsibility

10 Each Module Includes:  instructional objectives  knowledge and skills  student expectations

11 Module Numbering System 1 st number is the Module Number 2 nd number is the Instructional Phase 1 = classroom 2 = in-car 3 = observation phase 3rd number is the Knowledge and Skills ABC’s for the Student Expectations

12 Using Module 3 as an example… Module starts off with the Instructional Objective … This is the BIG Picture

13 Module Three: Vehicle Movements The student legally and responsibly performs Vehicle Movements reduced-risk driving practices in the Highway Transportation System (HTS) by: sustaining visual attention and communication, utilizing reference points, managing vehicle balance, and executing vehicle maneuvers. Instructional ObjectivePOI Handout page 22

14 Then the modules provide: Recommended Timeframes … POI Handout page 25 & 26

17 Then, the Modules provide, Knowledge and Skills

18 3.1.1Visual Attention, Mental Attention, and Communication. The student reduces risk by legally and responsibly sustaining visual attention and communication. The student is expected to: Knowledge and Skill See POI handout page 27 – 30 for Knowledge and Skills through 3.1.6

19 AND, Student Expectations

20 …what the student is expected to know when the lesson is complete. Student Expectations

21 A.describe how to sustain visual attention, mental attention, and communication; B.relate how the sense of sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch, and kinesthesia support visual attention and mental attention; C.illustrate and explain the purpose of the different fields of vision; D.describe how to utilize visual targeting to sustain visual attention and mental attention; E.describe how each field of vision supports visual attention and visual targeting; F.illustrate and define open, closed, and changing vehicle operating space, line of sight, path of travel, lane placement, and following interval; G.summarize how vehicle speed impacts visual attention, mental attention, and communication; H. list the characteristics of traditional and non-traditional roadways and intersections including railroad grade crossings and traffic circles; I.summarize how to use visual attention and mental attention to identify other roadway users including vulnerable roadway users (pedestrian including a runner, physically disabled person, child skater, highway construction and maintenance worker, utility worker, or other worker with legitimate business in or near the roadway or right of way, or stranded motorist or passenger, person on horseback, person operating equipment other than a motor vehicle including, bicycle, motorcycle, horse-driven conveyance, farm equipment, slow moving vehicles, etc.); J.list the characteristics of traditional and non-traditional roadways and intersections including railroad grade crossings and traffic circles; K.relate how visual attention and communication are utilized to manage vehicle operating space, line of sight, path of travel, lane placement, right-of-way, following interval, vehicle speed, communication, and compensating for limitations; L.list communication techniques utilized to alert other roadway users including vulnerable roadway users who may or may not be utilizing visual attention and mental attention; M.list communication techniques utilized by other roadway users including vulnerable roadway users to obtain a driver’s visual attention and mental attention; and N.reduce risk by legally and responsibly sustaining visual attention, mental attention, and communication. Student Expectations POI handout page 27

22 AND, Driving Plan Driving Plan – Formulation of a plan that incorporates the knowledge and skills that provides the foundation to launch and continue the lifelong learning process of legal and responsible reduced- risk driving practices. POI Handout page 29

23 AND, Classroom and In-car Progress Assessment

24 Texas Administrative Code, § Progress Appropriate standards shall be implemented to ascertain the progress of the students. 1.Progress standards shall meet the requirements of the Program of Instruction (POI) for Driver Education and Traffic Safety approved by the commissioner of education. 2.Successful completion and mastery are prerequisites to awarding a grade of 70% or above.

25 POI requires an assessment at the end of EACH Module TAC § POI The student reduces risk by legally and responsibly completing a Progress Assessment to evaluate classroom knowledge and understanding and measure progress (mastery equals 70% or above). POI The student reduces risk by legally and responsibly utilizing baseline and progress assessment tools to evaluate and improve behind-the-wheel skill level (mastery equals 70% or above)..

26 Classroom Assessment of Modules must include questions to measure knowledge of each POI student expectation (what the student is suppose to know after they are taught a module) POI handout page 28

27 Behind-the-Wheel Assessment includes assessed with a POI Baseline Assessment Tool while student is demonstrating their ability to perform the Modules tasks POI handout page 28

28 Group Activity 1.Divide into 12 assigned groups 2.Develop activity for assigned module 3.Report activities to all groups Activities will be compiled and posted on ESC website.

29 Driving Plan Driving Plan – Formulation of a plan [by the student] that incorporates the knowledge and skills that provides the foundation to launch and continue the lifelong learning process of legal and responsible reduced-risk driving practices. POI Handout page 29

30 Driving Plan Complete the following statements from the knowledge and skills you have learned in the Module. Safety: I will use the information I learned in Module 1: Traffic Laws to develop legal and responsible reduced risk driving practices by: Economy: I will use the information I learned in Module 1: Traffic Laws to conserve our environmental resources and develop environmentally friendly driving practices by: Civility: I will use the information I learned in Module 1: Traffic Laws to develop courteous driving behaviors to share the roadways with other roadway users by cooperating and sharing the roadway with:
