Descriptive Evaluation Report of Diversified Outdoor Education.
Rockingham County School System, Wentworth, NC.
A diversified outdoor education project under Title III, Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, was started in June 1967 in Rockingham County, North Carolina. Objectives, activities, and student performance in the 3 phases of the program were evaluated through September 1968. A combined outdoor education and corrective reading program consisted of structured and nonstructured reading experiences revolving around individual interests and needs. A resident camp program for mentally retarded youth provided 24-hour supervision and instruction in communication skills, physical development skills, self-help skills, social behavior skills, and practical work skills. The third program within the project involved conservation and nature studies through actual examples and experiences. (JH)
