• Explain why and when we use effective skills
  instruction in BSA.
• Explain the steps in effective skills instruction.

A portion of every troop meeting is set aside for
  “skills instruction”.
Set the stage: Young scouts going on 1st BP trip
  and need to know how to use the stoves safely or
  the troop just bought new stoves and we are
  learning how to use them safely.

            Types of Stoves
•Integral Fuel Container
     – fuel container connected directly to the
     stove
•External Fuel Container
     – fuel container is separate and connected
     by a fuel line

NE-II-177                 5
                   Types of Stoves
•Integral Fuel Container - This type of stove has
the fuel container connected directly to the stove.
•External Fuel Container - The fuel container is
separate from this type of stove and connected by
a fuel line.
There are many types of backpacking stoves that
range from the basic to the exotic. The stove you
choose will depend upon your requirements, such
as ease of handling, weight, bulk, and type of fuel.

          Types of Fuels
•Liquid
  – white gas, refined kerosene and alcohol


•Compressed Gas
  – propane, isobutane and propane/butane mix




                        6
             Types of Fuels
There are two types of fuels available for
  backpacking stoves.
• Liquid – white gas, refined kerosene, and
  alcohol. Liquid fuels require being transferred
  into an external or internal fuel cylinder
  depending upon the stove.
• Compressed Gas – propane, isobutane and
  propane/butane mix come in one time use
  cylinders.

  Stove Safety Continued
• Liquid fuels and compressed gas can be
  dangerous, use extreme caution when using
  them.
• Always check the stove manual to ensure you are
  using the correct type of fuel.
• Never pour fuel into or near a hot stove.
• Allow sufficient time for fuel vapors to disperse
  before attempting to light a stove after pouring
  fuel.
• Always use with adult supervision.

Stove Safety Continued
• Use the heat shield between the stove and
  the fuel cylinder.
• Hand tighten pumps and cylinders.
• When removing a fuel bottle, pressure must
  be released slowly to avoid spraying or
  spilling fuel.
• Be careful not to cross-thread gas fittings
  when connecting them to a stove or fuel line.
• Never store any fuel, either compressed gas
  or liquid, inside a tent or sleeping area.

   Stove Safety Continued
• Always operate stoves on a flat stable surface that
  is free from burnable material.
• If the stove is designed to burn multiple types of
  fuel, pick one and stick with it. DON’T MIX!
• Fuel bottles should be treated the same way.
• Always follow manufacturers instructions.
• The most important safety feature of any stove is a
  trained operator.

             Stove Preparation
For today’s demonstration, we will use a MSR®
  DragonFly™ stove.

To operate this stove we need the following
  materials:
• One MSR® DragonFly™ stove
• One MSR® Fuel Bottle (filled with liquid fuel)
• Matches or lighter
• Repair kit

 Assembling the Stove
1. Remove stove from carrying case.
2. Open the legs, snap the legs into place and place
   the stove on a level durable surface.
3. Unscrew the fuel bottle cap and fill the bottle to the
   fill line. Be sure to keep the bottle away from your
   face and others. (demonstrate)
4. Screw the pump snugly into the fuel bottle.
5. Make sure the valve is closed
6. Pump the plunger 15-20 strokes. If bottle is half full
   pump 15-30 strokes or until firm resistance is felt
   when pushing the plunger down. (The less fuel, the
   more pumps)

7. Lubricate the end of the fuel line lightly
    with MSR® Pump Cup Oil (saliva or
    other mineral-base lubricant), then
    insert it into the fuel tank bushing on
    the pump.
8. Snap the catch arm securely into the
    slot on the pump body.
9. Put the heat reflector in place.
10. Bend fuel line to allow stove to sit
    squarely on the ground.

Before lighting the stove check that:
•         Stove assembly has no fuel leaks.
•         Area is clear of flammable materials
•         Catch arm is locked and stove is properly
          assembled.

      Operating the Stove
Priming instructions for white gas:

       Priming pre-heats the stove to turn the
        liquid fuel into vapor. To pre-heat properly,
        the priming flame must contact the
        generator tube. Insufficient priming may
        result in flare-up.

  2. If the stove :
      •Goes out, turn the Flame Adjuster off       .
      •Burns with erratic yellow flames, but the
      priming cup is still burning, turn the Flame
      Adjuster off    and pre-heat longer.
      •Burns with a blue flame, wait a minute then
      adjust to     desired setting. There is a delay
      between turning the control valve and changes
      in flame.

      Operating the Stove
Turning the Stove on:
  3. To maintain stove performance, pump the
     plunger 3-5 strokes as needed to keep
     enough pressure in the fuel tank. You
     should feel firm resistance when you
     pump down on the plunger. The less fuel
     in the bottle , the more pumps needed to
     keep pressure. DO NOT over pressurize.
     Fuel bottle pressure that is to high causes
     erratic flames. Low pressure causes low
     flames and very slow burn times.

               pump assembly.
              Away away from heat, sparks, or flame, hold the fuel bottle
               upright, turn the pump assembly away from you, and
               unscrew the pump to release pressure!

    6. When packing always make sure the Fuel Bottle
       is depressurized and the On/Off Valve is
       securely off
    7. To Pack: Turn the stove upside down, Rotate

Skills Instruction
• Skills Instruction is an integral part of Cub
  Scouting, Boy Scouting and Venturing.

• Scouting’s approach to skills instruction is:
     See it    Do it   Test it    Review it

• Another way to put it is this:
     Explain    Demonstrate         Try
     Critique   Debrief

• Teaching and Learning
• Application
• Evaluation

Effective Skills Instruction
We have just completed a skills instruction. Let’s
  review the steps.
The steps in effective skills instruction:
• Objective: It is what you need to teach, i.e., how
  to light the stove
• Discovery: Realization the skill is needed, e.g.
  you didn’t know how to or it is a new type of stove
• Teaching and Learning: the actual teaching
• Application: Doing it, lighting the stove
• Evaluation: Did you learn, can you light it?
Also point out that sometimes discovery precedes
  objective - can’t do something so let’s learn it.

Great leaders are great teachers

• I would like to encourage all patrol
  members to watch the teaching techniques
  of the presenters throughout the Wood
  Badge Course.
• What can be learned about teaching
  methods by studying good instructors can
  be every bit as valuable as the material they
  are presenting.
