Ask students to make their own decision individually and then ask for volunteers to share their decision and reasons with the class.
Use students reasons for their decision to explore how values influence our thinking.
eg. Health and food choices
Refer students to pg. 32 - 34 in their student learning journal and ask them to choose one scenario or write one of their own that relates to bike riding. Check their understanding of the task, if needed provide additional help by modelling one of the listed scenarios before students move off to work individually.
Encourage students to consider how others might influence them and if this is helpful.
eg. Scenario 1. Peer pressure to ride using unsafe equipment.
For students that finish early, have them complete the activity on pg. 26-27.
Conclude by telling the class that the instructors and teachers will be observing whether they can make safe and responsible decisions. Explain that it is part of their assessment and will help the adults decide if they can join them for a ride outside school grounds.
Have students share their decision with a parent or carer. The parent provides feedback that the student records. The parent signs on pg. 35
You may negotiate to do the junctions quiz in the practical session with instructors. Check with your Way2Go Bike Ed coordinator.
Once students have completed the quiz with an adult consider summarising how many got the answer correct for each question. Analyse the data by asking them what it might mean for how drivers and bike riders share the road safely. Explore what action they could take to promote safe travel in the local community.
