Drivers Ed class rides bikesCindy Ferek of Turner Ashby High School in Bridgewater, VA has her Drivers Ed students learn some of the rules of the road using bikes before they get behind the wheel. What a great idea. "I wanted to take the Drivers Education program in the classroom and put it onto bikes. The students weren't processing the information so I wanted to give them a hand's on experiential learning environment where they could go out and practice merging, right of way, yielding. We want them to learn to be cautious and courteous and safe."
By the way, Cindy was recently named National Physical Education High School Teacher of the Year.
