To begin with, keep it short, keep it simple, make it fun.
In 30 or 60 minutes you can't teach all the letters, as has been
pointed out. Start with the simple stuff... the ones the ARRL code
tapes begin with. But don't use the ARRL's (boring) words and
sentences. Appeal to the boys' base instincts.
Once the boys in our Webelos den figured out that I was
sending "TEN RATS ASSES IN TAR" and similar appealing phrases, they
perked up and were attentive to every letter!
