Transportation, Distribution and Logistics(TDL) covers the planning, management and movement of people, materials, and goods by road, pipeline, air, rail and water and related professional support services such as transportation infrastructure planning and management, logistics services, mobile equipment and facility management.
This web site provides a series of grades 6-12 curriculum units that will introduce students to careers, skills, and concepts one would need to succeed in the transportation industry. All lesson plans housed on the site were developed by teachers for teachers with input from their industry partners and are free for everyone to use.
With many industries competing for student interest these materials are designed to establish a potential pipeline of students who would become interested in entering the transportation field. The materials address the TDL cluster standards and appropriate academic standards. This content will enable teachers to expand, enhance and reinforce academic content and as a result improve transportation education as well as academic achievement.
The materials available on this site have been developed with funds from the US Department of Transportation and the US Department of Education working in partnership with the National Association of State Directors of Career and Technical Education.
