THE TEACHERS' HANDBOOK FOR THE OUTDOOR SCHOOL.
BURGESS, ROBERT A.; GILFILLAN, WARREN C.
THIS HANDBOOK FOR OREGON PUBLIC AND PAROCHIAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS IS FOR USE IN PLANNING AND UTILIZING THE OUTDOOR SCHOOL OF THE REGIONAL OUTDOOR EDUCATION PROGRAM HEADQUARTERED AT PORTLAND, OREGON. THE OUTDOOR SCHOOL WHICH UTILIZES CAMPS OWNED BY YOUTH-SERVING ORGANIZATIONS PROVIDES ELEMENTARY CLASSES (PRIMARY GRADE 6) AND THEIR TEACHERS THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE A WEEK OF LIVING IN CLOSE ASSOCIATION WITH OTHERS AND LEARNING FROM DIRECT CONTACT WITH THEIR ENVIRONMENT. MANY OF THE LEARNINGS ARE OUTGROWTHS OF THE REGULAR SCHOOL CURRICULUM, WHILE OTHERS ARE UNIQUE BECAUSE THEY CANNOT BE EXPERIENCED IN THE CLASSROOM. THE TEACHERS AND THEIR CLASSES ARE IN SCHOOL ABOUT FIVE HOURS PER DAY. A LARGE SHARE OF THE DIRECTION AND ACTUAL INSTRUCTION OF THE STUDENTS IS DONE BY THE OUTDOOR SCHOOL STAFF. THE DOCUMENT IS DIVIDED INTO SIX SECTIONS. SECTION 1 DEALS WITH THE DEFINITION OF THE OUTDOOR SCHOOL AND THE HISTORY OF THE OUTDOOR SCHOOL IN OREGON. SECTION 2 PRESENTS THE ROLE OF THE CLASSROOM TEACHER IN THE OUTDOOR SCHOOL. SECTION 3 DESCRIBES THE ORGANIZATION OF THE OUTDOOR SCHOOL. SECTION 4 IS CONCERNED WITH PARENT, STUDENT, AND TEACHER ORIENTATION TO THE OUTDOOR SCHOOL PROGRAM. EMPHASIS IS PLACED ON CLASSROOM STUDENT ACTIVITIES WHICH WILL HELP PREPARE STUDENTS FOR THE OUTDOOR SCHOOL. SECTION 5 DEALS WITH HEALTH FORMS, PERMISSION FORMS, ARRIVAL PROCEDURES, INSURANCE, DEPARTURE PROCEDURES, AND OTHER SPECIFIC INFORMATION NEEDED BY THE TEACHER. SECTION 6 DISCUSSES TEACHER FOLLOW-UP AFTER THE WEEK AT THE OUTDOOR SCHOOL. OTHER RESOURCES "THE FIELD STUDY NOTEBOOK,""THE COUNSELOR'S HANDBOOK," AND "THE STUDENT GUIDEBOOK" ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FOR THE OUTDOOR SCHOOL UNDER SEPARATE COVER. (DS)
