  1. 1. INTERPRETATION
  2. 2. Reading the Situation <ul><li>At the start of every tour you must assess the situation for the day. </li></ul><ul><li>This includes establishing where you are going and what the objectives are for the tour. </li></ul><ul><li>It is important to establish a rapport with the group from the onset. </li></ul><ul><li>Give the group the information they need about destination, safety, food, clothing water, prior to departing. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep it brief. People’s attention spans tend to wander during long presentation. You can add information later. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Assessing the Group <ul><li>It is important to gauge the abilities and interests of the group prior to departing. Hopefully this can be done when you meet the group and traveling to the site. </li></ul><ul><li>Adjust the information you give to meet the needs of the group. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep the stronger hikers occupied and allow the rest of the group to keep together. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Evaluate Your Options Effectively <ul><li>How you approach an individual tour from the beginning is likely to determine it’s success or failure </li></ul><ul><li>It is easy to give a good tour with lots of lava. It takes experience to give a good tour when there isn’t much to see. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Identify the Opportunites for Interpretation <ul><li>Use breaks to point out features related to hazards. </li></ul><ul><li>Use examples of inappropriate behavior as opportunites to educate. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Choosing the Appropriate Action <ul><li>No two tours are ever the same. The activity varies, the weather changes, and the group dynamics are different. </li></ul><ul><li>As guides, your actions will have a large affect on the experience and perceptions the vistors have on the trip. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Carry the Interaction to a logical Conclusion <ul><li>The goal is to let each person develop their own meaning from the experience. </li></ul><ul><li>As guides, we are not just passing along information, but trying to develop a framework for visitors to experience the volcano. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Encourage Higher Level Understanding <ul><li>A primary goal is for the visitors to come away with a deeper understanding of Hawaiian volcanoes and cultural values related to them. </li></ul><ul><li>It is important that we impart a sense of values to visitors. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Goals of a Successful Tour <ul><li>The tour must be safe </li></ul><ul><li>Everyone should have a good time </li></ul><ul><li>Visitors should become more educated and develop a deeper appreciation for Hawai‘i. </li></ul><ul><li>We should set an example of how to operate tours within the National Park. </li></ul>
