Stage 6, Years 11 and 12

With many senior students already learning to drive, Stage 6 (Years 11 and 12) road safety education resources concentrate on drivers and their passengers. Limiting risks, protecting lives has activities to challenge student attitudes to the decisions and risks they face as drivers.

In the driver’s seat allows students to consider the nature of authority, develop a sense of responsibility towards road safety and minimise risks.

In the driver’s seat – The nature of authority

This resource supports the outcomes of the Stage 6 (Year 11) Preliminary English (Standard, Advanced and ESL) syllabus in NSW. It is designed to help senior students who are at the age where many of them are learning to drive. Activities encourage students to consider where authority lies and how it operates, and the powers of persuasion in different texts and media. Students also examine how public road safety education campaigns work and how to find an effective balance between acceptance of authority and independent thought and action.

Limiting risks, protecting lives – Choices for novice drivers and their passengers

This Student Wellbeing resource covers Stages 5 and 6 (Years 10 and 11). Students are encouraged to analyse their behaviour as drivers and passengers, with a wide range of questions to promote deeper thinking and knowledge. Modules include research on statistical road crash data relating to speed, how to get your driver licence, strategies to become low-risk drivers and the common causes of crashes.
