My SM is a high school social science teacher and he includes tests as part
of his citizenship MB counseling. Now that archeology (however it is
spelled) has hit the streetd, I'll bet that he is devising a test for that
also. Passing the test isn't the key to earning the MB, but it does give
him a clue on the Scout's understanding.
Just as a point of interest, while at Jamboree I was talking with one of
the National Park Service rangers at the archeology booth and he told me
that the Park Service had submit the recommendation for the archeology MB
almost 6 years ago. Said it takes a long time for National to approve a
MB, due to decisions on interest level, span and breath of MB requirements
and the like.
