Safe Routes to School P.E. Teacher Traffic Skills Training
September 14, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
On Saturday, September 14, Bike Easy will teach basic bike and pedestrian safety education for teachers. This course focuses on teaching elementary and middle school students. The workshop will be taught by Bike Easy instructors who are certified League of American Bicyclist Cycling Instructors.
This “Train the Trainers” workshop is structured in two sections:
Safety Classes — These in-class presentations aim to give students the essentials of bicycle and pedestrian safety in a short, assembly-style format.
Bike Rodeos — The rodeos focus on giving youth participants the essential skills they need to bicycle safely, while creating a fun and playful series of activities for them to learn. We practice motor skills, go through mock intersections and demonstrate signaling to reinforce traffic principles.
Once teachers have finished the class, they will have basic knowledge of bike and pedestrian safety. This will be followed by an in-class session at your school, where Bike Easy leads a sample lesson for your students and the P.E. teacher duplicates. After the final feedback, you will receive a certificate of completion.
Note: Bike Easy will provide kids bikes for use during the individual school training.
Please bring a bike to ride and a helmet. If you do not have a bike, please notify us in your RSVP. Bike Easy has a limited supply of bike helmets to use.
