Summary Teaching Orienteering (Second Edition) makes it easier than ever for busy teachers, leaders, and coaches to introduce orienteering skills and techniques to students of the sport. Each suggested exercise in the book is self-contained and can be used in whatever order teachers or leaders deem appropriate for their needs. Plus, each exercise has been laid out so that teachers can quickly determine the purpose of the exercise, the age groups it is suitable for, the time it will take to complete, and the equipment needed.
