Article: History Leaves 10 Survivalists ‘Alone’ For Summer

“10 survivalists are left in the Vancouver Island wilderness and have to survive using what they’ve been able to stuff into a backpack. At stake is $500,000 awarded to the person who lasts the longest.”

There are a large number of different processes the contestant go through in gaining wilderness / survival skills. Some of the processes are procedural / technical (e.g. learning how to build a trap or a shelter) but others are psychological.

The main end result for this reality show is becoming the last participant and the winner of the $500,000 prize. There are, however, a number of smaller “end results” such as completing a shelter, catching a fish, scaring away a threatening bear, etc.

A student could use this RLE more effectively by focusing on particular participant and looking at his / her background and performance on the show. The essay needs to have specific references to how knowledge is gained and used and how this is connected to “process” vs. “end result.”
