Adventist Youth Honors Answer Book

AY Answers.jpg

IntroductionEdit

Adventist Youth Honors Answer Book is an instructor's guide for teaching Adventist Youth (AY) Honors to members of Pathfinder Clubs and Adventist Youth Societies. Pathfinders and Adventist Youth are youth clubs operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The official requirements for all honors are available on the NAD Pathfinders site. Have fun earning honors!

Honor Category IndexEdit

There are 380 honors that have been approved at or above the Division level. These are presented below in nine honor categories. The stage icons (25% developed  as of 30 Nov, 2007) indicate the percentage of honors in each category that have comprehensive answers. The stage icon does not take partially answered honors into account.

100% developed  as of 19 Mar, 2010 ADRA (9)
50% developed  as of 8 Apr, 2010 Arts and Crafts (81)[1]
100% developed  as of 21 Nov, 2008 Health and Science (18)
75% developed  as of 25 Jul, 2009 Household Arts (18)
100% developed  as of 5 Sep, 2008 Nature (78)[2]
50% developed  as of 7 May 2008 Outdoor Industries (15)
75% developed  as of 24 Oct, 2008 Outreach (32)[3]
25% developed  as of 30 Nov, 2007 Recreation (91)[4]
50% developed  as of 30 Nov, 2007 Vocational (38)

Official answer books for some honor categories are available through AdventSource, although some honor categories do not have answer books at all. This Wikibook aims to fill that gap. The requirements (without answers) for all honors are available through AdventSource or online in various locations. The answers here are based on the requirements as adopted for the North American Division unless otherwise noted.

This answer book is being written by Pathfinders for Pathfinders. Anyone (even non-Pathfinders) can contribute new answers or edit existing answers, and the reader is encouraged to become an active participant in the development of this continually evolving work.

Honors with Completed Answer EntriesEdit

The entries for these honors have complete answers. Others are still under construction and may have had substantial work done on them, so it's very much worth your time to check in the appropriate series index for the honor you're interested in teaching.

Guidelines for ContributorsEdit

If you wish to contribute, welcome! Here are some guidelines.

The requirements for every honor have already been entered, with the exception of the newest honors with unreleased requirements. Instruction for meeting the requirement, or an answer to the question posed by the requirement should follow the requirement. Look at some of the existing answers to see how they are structured before you begin. Press the "edit this page" link to see how wiki markup is done, and be sure to check out the "editing help" link that appears at the bottom of a page being edited.

Please do not copy content from copyrighted sources without securing permission first. This especially applies to the answers in the official Answer Books by Leland Davis. It also applies to content that other people have written for various Pathfinder websites and to images you find on the Internet. Please read the Wikibooks:Copyrights section for more information. It is OK to gather information from these resources, and you are encouraged to consult multiple sources - but with few exceptions, you must put answers in your own words.

Resources in the public domain can be incorporated here without any constraints. This includes original works by the US government and anything published in the US before 1923. You also may copy content (modified or verbatim) from Wikipedia, and you may use any images you find in the Wikimedia Commons. Be aware though that many Wikipedia articles are written at a very high level, often requiring a college education (or medical degree!) to fully understand.

Keep your audience in mind when writing. Try to use language that is geared toward the typical Pathfinder who will be taught using this information. That means you should write at the fifth-grade level for honors that are designated as skill level 1, and eighth-grade level for honors that are designated at skill levels 2 and 3. It's OK to use technical terms as long as they are explained in the text.
