Revision of First Aid: A Guide to Earning the Merit Badge.An accompaniment to BSA's First Aid merit badge book, written to support scouts in a self-directed pursuit of the merit badge. This is possibly overkill, and possibly in violation of the spirit of self-directed learning and boy-led scouting, but I felt it necessary to do something to better handle the large number of scouts that want/need to pursue this merit badge while not spoon-feeding them in a merit badge "class". It is my hope that with this document scouts will be able to meet the merit badge requirements with more independence. Will this happen? We'll see... What do you think?In addition:There already exist well-established merit badge worksheets based on the requirements for each merit badge. However, at least for the most recent (2007) edition of the First Aid merit badge book, there does not seem to be a good match between the organization of the merit badge book and the merit badge requirements. The submitted guide is in part an attempt to reorganize the merit badge requirements (plus the relevant Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class advancement requirements) to better match the organization of the merit badge book.
