I’ve been working on several book projects this winter, and the first one is our new student handbook. I’ve put together a bunch of the student resources we’ve developed over the last ten years in our semester programs and expanded on them, resulting in a study guide for our semester programs that would also be useful for anyone interested in studying bushcraft.
You can download an excerpt here (pdf file) which includes a section on using the portfolio and logbook as an assessment tool, with a sample logbook entry.
We’ll be using it daily in our courses, as well as for the online bushcraft university we’re developing. Our newly updated nature study curriculum in section 4 outlines the exercises we’ve used in our semester courses for a number of years, and could be used as a standalone nature study course for anyone interested in expending their knowledge of the world around them.
