IT'S WORTH A VISIT.
EYMANN, DALE W.; AND OTHERS
IT IS HELD THAT A PROPERLY CONDUCTED SCHOOL JOURNEY IS A PLANNED, CAREFULLY SUPERVISED, AND THOROUGHLY EVALUATED VISIT TO A POINT OF INTEREST AWAY FROM THE IMMEDIATE VICINITY OF THE CLASSROOM. TO OBSERVE OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES FIRST HAND IS OF GREAT HELP IN CRYSTALLIZING CONCEPTS. TRIPS, HOWEVER, ARE JUSTIFIABLE ONLY WHEN THEY ARE RELATED DIRECTLY TO SUBJECT MATTER BEING STUDIED BY THE CLASS INVOLVED. SUCH JOURNEYS EXTEND UNDERSTANDING OF COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES AND RESOURCES, BUILD ATTITUDES OF CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY, AND DEVELOP APPRECIATION OF THE PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY. PRECISE AND REASONABLE PROCEDURES SHOULD BE FOLLOWED IN ARRANGING FOR AND MAKING A SCHOOL JOURNEY. AREAS OF STUDY FOR WHICH MANY WORTHWHILE SCHOOL JOURNEYS CAN BE MADE IN AND AROUND THE LOS ANGELES AREA ARE LISTED AS FOLLOWS-- AGRICULTURE, ART, BUSINESS EDUCATION, DRIVER EDUCATION, ENGLISH, FOREIGN LANGUAGES, HOME NURSING, HOMEMAKING, INDUSTRIAL ARTS, MATHEMATICS, MILITARY TRAINING, MUSIC, SCIENCE, AND SOCIAL STUDIES. THE INFORMATION IS INTENDED FOR THE USE OF THE LOS ANGELES PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHER AT THE SECONDARY LEVEL, JUNIOR COLLEGE LEVEL, AND TEACHERS INVOLVED WITH ADULT EDUCATION. (INFORMATION CONCERNING APPROXIMATELY 150 SUCH JOURNEYS IS GIVEN).
