TEACHING IN THE OUTDOORS.
HAMMERMAN, DONALD R.; HAMMERMAN, WILLIAM M.
OUTDOOR EDUCATION REINFORCES ABSTRACT LEARNING WITH CONCRETE EXPERIENCE. ITS RELATION TO THE CLASSROOM CURRICULUM IS LIMITED ONLY BY THE IMAGINATION OF THE INSTRUCTOR. OUTDOOR EDUCATION LENDS ITSELF TO THE EXPLORATORY OR DISCOVERY APPROACH TO LEARNING, WHEREBY QUESTIONING BY THE TEACHER CAUSES OBSERVATION AND REACTION BY THE STUDENT. THE RESIDENT SCHOOL CAMP PROGRAM IS THE ULTIMATE OUTDOOR EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE AND AFFORDS OPPORTUNITY FOR PLANNING, IMPLEMENTATION, AND EVALUATION IN COOPERATION WITH STUDENTS AND PARENTS. PROFESSIONAL TEACHER PREPARATION IN OUTDOOR EDUCATION CAN TAKE PLACE AT BOTH PRESERVICE AND INSERVICE LEVELS. APPENDICES INCLUDE LISTS OF COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES OFFERING OUTDOOR EDUCATION COURSES, SELECTED FILMS ON OUTDOOR EDUCATION, AND SELECTED RESIDENT OUTDOOR SCHOOLS OR SCHOOL CAMPS. THIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE FROM THE BURGESS PUBLISHING COMPANY, 426 SOUTH 6TH STREET, MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA 55440. (JEH)
