Badges ≠ Personal Progression
For a long time now our members have been focused on earning badges, and using badges as a means of judging personal progression. This is not an ideal approach. What we are really after is to ensure that Scouts are engaged in activities that have them learn by doing.Badges ≠ Personal Progression PDF
The Support Scouter and Plan-Do-Review
This in-Section training is intended for use by Support Scouters to enable them to work directly with a Scout Group Section to demonstrate elements of The Canadian Path. Through this in-person workshop, the Support Scouter will demonstrate and explain the process of Plan-Do-Review for Section Scouters in their meeting environment and give them an opportunity to try out the mode. This occurs in a very supportive environment, as the Section Scouters have opportunities to ask questions during the demonstration and in the review that follows the meeting. Through the exercises, the Section Scouters will also see the interrelatedness of all the elements of The Canadian Path.In-Section Training PDF
