Planning and Preparing for the Virtual Voyage
For each step of planning and preparing, students first brainstorm,
then do research and refine their plans and preparations. Each step is an
occasion for a short, informal essay or oral report.
Step 3. Becoming a Crew Member
Questions for Students: You may either decide to join the actual crew
of the canoe as a observer and reporter, or come up with your own crew of
12 from classmates, friends or people you know; or make-up an imaginary
crew of 12 people. If you select a crew, whom did you choose? What roles
would each crew member play? What criteria did you use to make your selections?
Visit the PVS website to find information on crew positions and selection.
Did you come up with a similar list of crew positions? Did you use the same
kinds of criteria for selecting crew members? How can you account for any
similarites and differences?
