Hey there friendly people, I am in the process of putting together an internal program handbook that will provide any new instructors an outline/understanding of our programs. I'm looking for
#1. Your general feedback of the table of contents#2. A copy of your organization's similar handbook#3. A list of additional fun games/activities that you think should be in this handbook.
I'm looking to pack a dozen or so descriptions/illustrations of games and activities that instructors can use to teach classes. For instance, a bike scavenger hunt where you hide different bike/tools parts in a given area and they have to fine each one and do a certain task before they can move on to the next activity. Below is the table of contents--
The ReCyclery Ultimate Program Handbook
Table of contents--
Overall mission and vision of The ReCyclery.
How programs serve our mission and vision.
Program Values-- fun, safety, experiential, environmental stewardship, riding skills,
Program delivery philosophy (What is the ReCyclery way to teach cycling education? What is our method?)
-fun games/activities that involve/use skills being taught
List of types of educational programs (safety and riding skills) and HOW TO DO IT! (Lesson Plans, activities, games, instructions, safety considerations)
-2 hour workshops/classes
-Day long classes
-3-5 day long camp sessions (3-5 hours)
-2-4 day bike trips
-unicycle -womens bike night -welding -DIY panniers class
Tricks of the trade for Instructors (other ideas, games, ropes course activities etc.)
Setting up and running programs (marketing, insurance, recruiting participants, registration, etc.)
