LESSON PLANS, Civil Air Patrol deserves curriculum resources that cadets need and a standardized structure for. leaders to readily use For this reason these lesson plans were developed Each lesson is designed. to help the leader to lead an informal guided discussion of a main principle from the Learn to Lead. textbook Leaders can be senior ranking cadets or adult members. Lessons should be taught during the leadership blocks of instruction see CAPR 52 16 for a. suggested quarterly training format Each leadership lesson has two parts an informal guided. discussion that should last about 25 30 minutes followed by one or more experiential hands on. activities that typically lasts a total of about 25 30 minutes. Why are there no answers to the questions asked in the lessons CAP is employing an open concept. for the informal discussions Since there is no right or wrong answer to the questions the. anticipated responses will vary greatly Listing just some of the anticipated responses may lead. some to conclude that those responses listed are the preferred answers As the instructor you. should use the questions as beginning points for the informal guided discussion and take brief. notes of the cadets answers After all your instructing role is also a leadership learning experience.
