Bike/Walk Safety Training for PE Teachers
Training Physical Ed Teachers to teach Bike and Walk Safety in their P.E. classes.
Walk and Roll to school week is the culmination of Bike Easy’s comprehensive biking and walking safety training program for ten schools as part of the City of New Orleans’ Crescent City Crossing program.
Bike Easy is conducting “train the teacher” training for Physical Education teachers in the following schools:
Alice M. Harte Charter
Benjamin Franklin Elementary
Dolores T Aaron Elementary
Edward Hynes Elementary
International School of Louisiana
Joseph Craig Elementary Lusher Charter Middle/high
McDonogh 32 Literacy Charter Phillis Wheatley Community School
The training started off with an all-day training with the PE Teachers, where we taught a modified version of Traffic Safety 101 bike safety class along with lessons on pedestrian safety. The goal of this training is to share the Bike & Walking Safety curriculum with PE Teachers. After completion of the training the teachers will then be able to teach their students and incorporate biking in their PE classes.
After the all-day teacher training Bike Easy assisted each teacher with leading bike and walking safety instruction at their school. Students at each of the ten schools received on and off bike instruction during their PE class.
During Walk and Roll to School Week each school in the program will create their own bike or pedestrian activities during the week of Oct. 16th thru 20th.
Lastly the community is invited along with the 10 schools to participate in the Walk and Roll New Orleans Family Bike Ride on Saturday Oct. 21st from Noon to 2p in City Park. This family friendly bike ride will be an hour bike ride through and around City Park.
