Outdoor Education, Action Model.
Nolan, Hugh B.
An outdoor education program is described which has the philosophy that a direct experience is better than a vicarious one, and that the efficiency of education is increased in direct proportion to the amount of direct experience. An historical background which included pilot programs and experimental programs is discussed. Facilities, philosophy of the outdoor school, staff, program costs, staff role, and related developments are also considered. Illustrations and long-range plans conclude the document.
