The Jack Mountain Bushcraft Teaching Process | JMBP-E024

Big group photo

In episode 24 we talk about our approach teaching the Wilderness Bushcraft Semester course, discuss the role of framing experiences, how honesty is crucial, the difference between teaching kids (pedagogy) and adults (androgogy), as well as recap what we did during week 1 of the fall ’17 WBS.

This episode was recorded in the guide shack at the field school with Ben Spencer and Christopher Russell.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
