Receiving a DWT: Driving While Texting
A lesson plan from PECentral
that is essential for teen-agers. Let students experience in a safe way how dangerous it is to text and drive. Set out a course studded with obstacles for students to try to navigate on scooters while simulating texting on a cell phone. Videotape the activity to show the students what difficulties they have trying to drive while distracted. Maybe it wouldn’t be a bad idea for the teachers to try this too!
