Lesson Plan Lesson Title: 2.2.1 - Define and prepare orders of dress in the AAC – Lesson 1 Orders of Dress References: Stores/Aids: Cadet Training TMP TO 2.2.1 Ironing board ASOD Iron Cadet Instructors Handbook Cadet Qualities Method Location Date/Time Lecture/demonstration 1 x 40 min lessons Safety Precautions: Layout: Additional Points: Attendance Check: Stores Allocation: Revision: There is no revision for this lesson. Approach (Reason for Learning): During this lesson you will be taught how to correctly maintain and wear the orders of dress for cadets. The reason you are taught this is because the appearance and turn out of cadets in uniform is an outward display of the cadet's self-discipline and the discipline within his or her unit. High standards of discipline engender high morale and favourable public and Service opinion. For these reasons, all members of cadets are to ensure that they maintain their uniform in a state of good repair, clean and, if appropriate well pressed. People judge a book by its cover. The public and Service personnel judge the effectiveness of cadets by the dress and bearing of its members. Statement of Objective: At the end of this lesson you will be able to: a. Describe the orders of dress in cadets; b. Explain the wearing of embellishments; and c. Correctly clean, prepare and wear uniforms. Body of the Lesson Stage Teaching Points Conduct 1.
