Life #6 implementation

While a Star Scout, use the Teaching EDGE method to teach another Scout (preferably younger than you) the skills from ONE of the following choices, so that the Scout is prepared to pass those requirements to their Scoutmaster’s satisfaction.
H. Three requirements from one of the required for Eagle merit badges, as approved by your Scoutmaster

Just had a scout ask me a good ? I had never thought of. Take Cooking as an example - does it mean

  1. Requirements 1a, 1b, 1c
  2. Requirements 1, 2, 3

First thought is 1a, 1b, 1c as that matches up better with the rank options for teaching.

If a scout asked me, I would probably have them propose what they want to teach under option h, and why it’s at least equivalent to options a-g. The reason I say that is because it likely depends a great deal on which MB and requirements the scout is proposing.

For some MBs, a “whole” requirement plus two “subrequirements” might be equivalent to what’s being taught. For most of the ones I counsel, it’s typically the other way around (almost any 3 subrequirements >> options a-g).
