Teaching a beginner obedience class
So my obedience club was needing someone to teach the beginner class so the usual instructors could have some time off. I stepped up to it and the classes start next week - 6 weeks for one session. I really wanted to teach puppy class, but that instructor isn't giving that up yet! So I'm trying to design the curriculum for how I will teach it and what I will teach. Is there anything any of you wished you had done in beginners? I am thinking of setting aside week 5 or 6 to be a game night - have rosettes, ribbons or medals for people to compete for while we play games. That will give them an incentive to actually work with their dogs outside of class. Any other ideas on how to make it fun yet motivate people to actually do the homework outside of class?
