My Public Transpo

MY PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM provides students an opportunity to safely grow in their independence and self reliance by learning how to efficiently use another form of Green Transportation – the BUS. In one class, students will learn the benefits of taking the bus, and the knowledge necessary to become skilled and confident in using public transportation. Upon request, Transportation of Marin (TAM) will provide a bus on campus for hands-on learning, including how to load on and off a bike.

Drive Your Bike

DRIVE YOUR BIKE!
Level One:
Drive Your Bike teaches students "smart cycling" and defensive riding to become safe, confident, and independent bikers on streets. The two classes include a fun and interactive PowerPoint GAMESHOW that teaches safety measures and the laws for sharing the road with motorists and an outdoor class with bikes to reinforce maneuvers and proficiency to safely operate their device on the street. An optional, Instructor-led Field Trip where skills are put to use, may be arranged after school upon request.

Level Two: Drive Your Bike is an advance course on "Drivers Education" where students will learn vehicle traffic codes and best practices for driving their bikes predictably and safely to avoid collisions. The two classes include interactive discussions on riding responsibly and visibly, and includes how to confidently and legally "take the lane" for making turns, and an outdoor advance class with bikes to practice the skills necessary for safely maneuvering in traffic. An optional, Instructor-led Field Trip where skills are put to use, may be arranged after school upon request.

WHAT DO I STAND FOR? The Values Clarification Activity invites students to explore their beliefs, values, and their willingness to take action with transportation and the environment as the central theme. The purpose of the activity is to empower students to consciously make a difference in their world by being aware of their own views. They actively hear the perspectives of others, discuss positive role models, and take a proactive stand for their beliefs. Facilitators encourage a safe environment for students to explore their personal values and the choices they make.
