Category talk:Life Skills
From OpenContent Curriculum
The single broad category which is not specifically addressed in the Life Skills levels - and should be at several of them in a very specific manner, I believe, is outdoor/survival skills. While it may be intended as an implied part of several of the levels, it really is only specifically stated in one or two of the levels. Living where we do, it deserves more than that. While some may say that outdoor/survival skills should be taught at home, they are far too important and sometimes overlooked for some of our students. Besides, in cases where a staff member does not feel competent to provide some of the necessary local knowledge, it can become a way for the school to open the doors to community input and expertise.
