The Rock Climbing Teaching Guide.
Kudlas, John
The product of 10 years of rock climbing instruction, this guide provides material from which an instructor can teach basic climbing concepts and safety skills as well as conduct a safe, enjoyable rock climbing class in a high school setting. It is designed for an instructor with limited experience in climbing; however, the need for teacher enthusiasm and patience is emphasized. Also accented are the positive aspects of psychological and physical skill development. For instance, rock climbing can provide a moderate amount of stress which can lead to personal insight and promote self-confidence. Safety aspects are dealt with in depth, emphasizing "why" something has to be done. Equipment needs and care are discussed in terms of both school budgets and safety. The 13-session course includes 1 class on the "Three-Point Rule" which requires students to crawl or walk while moving only 1 limb at a time. Each class session has a seven-point format. This guide also includes a long segment on constructing artificial climbing walls to provide experience in any locale. (AN)
