  • Lesson Plans...Other subjects

    Can anyone give me any tips for writing lesson plans for the likes of map reading or tactics?

    Since finishing the POTS course I have become proficient in writing AD, FD, RM, LMG lessons. However, when I went to write a tactics lesson plan I came up against a brick wall. Unlike the Steyr manual, TM201 isnt broken down into different lessons.

    The same is true for map reading & field craft & fire control. Can anybody who has written lesson plans for these subjects give me any pointers? Would it be fair to assume that each chapter is a different lesson?
    If your not in bed by 4 o' clock it's time to go home!

    The fieldcraft & fire control plan is broken up into lessons, although it isn't layed out as well as the weapons manuals.

    Map reading lessons very much depend on the lesson you are teaching, check your training programme and then consult the manual. There are useful guidelines in the manual for a map reading training programme.
