Educational Field Trips for Disadvantaged Pupils in Nonpublic Schools. Evaluation of ESEA Title I Projects in New York City 1968-69.
Vinci, Thomas G.
This report describes the findings of a study of an educational bus trip program for disadvantaged children. The participant schools are located in neighborhoods certified as poverty areas by the New York City Council Against Poverty. Data analyzed were gathered through questionnaires to teachers, parents, principals, and students. Recommendations offered as means of strengthening the program were as follows. (1) Teachers should provide more structure in advance of each trip so that students can focus their attention on particular aspects of the trip being planned. (2) Teachers should be given the opportunity to visit the trip sites prior to scheduled trips so that more effective advanced preparation of the pupils could result. (3) Greater effort should be made to ensure that parent escorts accompany all trips to provide supervision for smaller trip site grouping, especially where no tour guide is available. Copies of questionnaire forms used are appended. See ED 034 002 for 1967-68 evaluation report. (RJ)
