Basic Archery. Instructor Manual: Archery Skills Series.
Written with classroom teachers in mind, the learning module presents information and activities for youth to learn to shoot a bow safely and to develop reasonable skill with the bow and arrow. Ten objectives to be achieved at the completion of instruction include: identifying parts of the bow and arrow; defining such terms as recurve bow, end, round, high and low anchor; describing and demonstrating proper form when shooting, safe shooting procedures, and stringing and unstringing a bow; and shooting a modified round with success. Guidelines are provided for adapting archery equipment and instruction for mentally retarded and hearing/visually/orthopedically impaired students. Twenty rules of safety are addressed and emphasized for importance in teaching archery. The subject information includes archery equipment, class size, range layout, preliminary classroom instruction mimetics, learning to shoot, scoring and rounds, and novelty events. Ten 60-minute lesson plans are arranged so instructors may only use the first five lessons if time does not permit. Each lesson lists equipment and materials needed for activities. A suggested written test and skills test are provided to evaluate students' mastery of material taught. A glossary of archery terms, bibliography of references and suggested teaching aids provide additional information. (ERB)
