Careers in Transportation Curriculum Project Develops Pipeline of Students
The Transportation Careers Curriculum Project provides educators with a series of curriculum units that cover Transportation, Distribution and Logistics (TDL) topics.
The goal of the project is to develop a pipeline of talented students who are interested in careers in the transportation field, and the content provided on the site helps prepare teachers to join this effort. Lessons developed deal with a variety of transportation-related subjects, including the planning, management and movement of people, materials, and goods by a variety of means as well as transportation infrastructure planning and management, logistics services, mobile equipment and facility management.
The Transportation Careers website is a clearinghouse of curriculum units for educators, providing them with guides for grades six through 12. It will help introduce classrooms to vital careers, skills, and concepts needed for success in the transportation industry. The lesson plans were developed collaboratively by teachers and industry partners. Lesson plans are housed on the site, which meets appropriate academic standards and is free for anyone to use.
This clearinghouse is made possible through funds provided by U.S. Department of Transportation and the U.S. Department of Education working in partnership with the National Association of State Directors of Career and Technical Education.
