Silent City Streets is our KS3 Uber resource covering many road safety issues, mixed with dialogue of social issues and community considerations when dealing with busy roads and fast cars.
The resource consists of:
A Quick Start Guide
30 Investigation DVDs
A Discussion DVD
9 Lesson plans
A road safety discussion guideline
The class investigates independently to gain their own conclusion to each event.
The class then conducts a guided discussion into their interpretation of:
What happened in the incident?
Why it happened?
Who could be blamed?
How it could be prevented in the future?
There are two scenarios:
There has been a collision, resulting in numerous deaths in the center of Silent City.
You and your friend are on the scene with a video camera and are told that you could investigate the scene, recording people's responses and opinions and you could then sell this to the local news channel.
In your investigation you uncover the mixed opinions from the community as to why this event happened, who was to blame and how it could be prevented in the future.
Hazel Dene, local superstar reporter is broadcasting a story about the opening of the Doghouse nightclub. A young girl is knocked down by a car and presumed dead as the report is going live.
You guide Hazel around the scene to investigate crowd opinion and community comments around the topic of why it happened, who was to blame and how it could be prevented in the future.
