The Safe Routes Partnership is pleased to announce the release a new publication called Bicycle and Pedestrian Curricula Guide: Making the Case for Bicycle and Pedestrian Youth Education.
The guide, created through a contract from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is intended to give Safe Routes to School practitioners, teachers, school administrators and others the necessary background information to fully understand the positive benefits of teaching bicycle and pedestrian education in the classroom, and to provide these audiences with easy access to currently available curricula. The guide and its accompanying inventory are organized into descriptive categories that will help in choosing the right curriculum for specific classroom needs.
The Safe Routes Partnership’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Curricula Guide: Making the Case for Bicycle and Pedestrian Youth Education was created through the help of several dozen bicycle and pedestrian education leaders throughout the country; we thank everyone who assisted for their help and contributions. If you were unable to submit your curriculum for review, you can fill out this form to have your curriculum added to an online database which will be updated periodically.
