The basis of developing instructional methods for Scouts begins by determining who instructs.
If adults are doing all the instruction they are denying their Scouts the opportunity to develop some important skills.
Our role is to empower our youth leadership to instruct by training them in the methods of Scout instruction. All of the skills and methods discussed here can be applied to instructing the methods themselves.
Gather your youth leadership together and use these methods to train them in Scout Instruction. Give them alot of support and encouragement the first few times they instruct and they will quickly develop into an effective team. Once they have some mastery of the skills and intentions make it a practice to instruct only when invited to do so by your youth leadership.
