The class teacher resource is designed to be taught during the same term that your class participates.
Topics 1 - 2 must be taught before the first practical session. This will prepare students well for learning the practical bike riding skills.
Topic 3 - 4 are used to build on the practical lessons and reflect on personal learning.
Topic 3 will help students to understand and engage in class discussions with the instructors.
Topic 4 will help support students in their development towards becoming safe and responsible decision makers.
Consult with your school coordinator about participation dates to plan for delivery over the term or for an intensive period. The topics are listed in sequential order.
You may decide to teach two topics in one time block, or distribute throughout the term. The instruction guide for each topic is just that, a guide. Feel free to change the approach and duration to meet the needs of your specific students.
