JLBC CADET CADRE TRAINING
The JLBC cadet needs to lead by example because their behavior sets the tone for prospective and new cadets, some of whom may not be sure if JLBC is right for them. During this activity, the cadet cadre discusses what professional standards they must uphold as JLBC instructors. Further, the cadre reviews the JLBC curriculum and considers how they can best use the course’s lesson plans as tools. The activity concludes with discussions about training methods and principles of extemporaneous speaking.
