Teaching Resources Update – Large Pile of New Resources Added

Monday, 22 September 2008
Empty ClassroomOver the weekend, I adjusted the layout slightly for the downloadable teaching resources section of our little website. Hopefully it should be a little easier navigate through and download.

For the past couple of months, I have been looking around off and on for start charts for the Southern Hemisphere with little luck. Yesterday I finally found a great set for each month available in pdf format.

With the new additions, we now have over 200 free resources covering a very wide range of topics from teaching theory to wilderness survival.

Over the years, I have been asked what a manual on wilderness surival has to do with paddle instruction. My theory has always been that a good instructor is one who is knowledgeable in a wide variety of topics related to the outdoors and our environement.

Finally, I have said it before. I am always on the lookout for new resources. If you have anything in your collection that you would like to share, send me a note. I am particularly looking for any type of canoe instruction resources. Of course you will get full credit for your hard work!
