HERE WE GO, A BUS RIDE WITH SIX YEAR OLDS.
DUDLEY, DOROTHY; AND OTHERS
A LEADING FEATURE IN THE CALIFORNIA STATE COMPENSATORY EDUCATION PROGRAM IS THE PROVISION FOR FIELD TRIPS TO BROADEN THE STUDENTS' CULTURAL BACKGROUND AND TO STIMULATE THEM EDUCATIONALLY AND CULTURALLY. THREE SPECIALLY ASSIGNED TEACHERS SELECT AND PREPARE FOR THE TRIPS, WORKING CLOSELY WITH THE REGULAR TEACHERS. PARENTS ARE INCLUDED ON FIELD TRIPS TO KEEP THEM INFORMED OF THE PROGRAM, TO ENLIST THEIR SUPPORT, AND TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO PARTICIPATE IN SCHOOL-COMMUNITY AFFAIRS. THE INITIAL FIELD TRIP OF THE SAN FRANCISCO SCHOOL DISTRICT INCLUDED VISITS TO THE CIVIC CENTER, CHINATOWN, BROADWAY TUNNEL, THE WATERFRONT, TWIN PEAKS, AND DIAMOND HEIGHTS, A NEW HOUSING DEVELOPMENT AREA. THE TRIP TOOK THE CHILDREN OUT OF THEIR IMMEDIATE HOME ENVIRONMENT, LET THEM SEE SAN FRANCISCO AS A WHOLE, AND INTRODUCED THEM TO A VARIETY OF ENVIRONMENTS. THE PLANNING OF THE INITIAL FIELD TRIP INVOLVED STUDENT PARTICIPATION IN A VARIETY OF CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES. THESE INCLUDED THE USE OF AN OPAQUE PROJECTOR TO STUDY A MAP OF SAN FRANCISCO, THE STUDY OF MACHINES AND TOOLS, THE READING OF LIBRARY BOOKS, THE CONSTRUCTION OF A HOUSE, AND THE DRAMATIZATION OF BUS MANNERS.
