Considering teaching at this year’s Son of Rock event for the first time, or been teaching for years? Either way, join me for a workshop overviewing the Son of Rock climbing curriculum and discussing some common instructional strategies to make each members’ Son of Rock experience the ideal experience! Topics discussed will include:


-Curriculum overview: discussion, updates, questions

-Designing a lesson plan

-The Instructor Team

-Ethics in Climbing

-Risk Management as an Instructor



This workshop will take a similar format to Artem B’s Becoming a Trip Leader workshop, where I will simply be a facilitator rather than a teacher. I’d like to hear everyones’ input on these topics, so while attendance is not required, it is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that all potential Son of Rock instructors attend. ***Also to note: This meeting will lead into the Son of Rock pre-trip meeting, and as such will be in the same room as the pre-trip meeting.*** Get stoked for getting others stoked out there!
