An Evaluation of the Mohican School in the Out-of-Doors.
The purpose of this document is to provide an evaluation report of the Mohican School in the Out-of-Doors (funded under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act), which offers a residential camp program for sixth graders and special education children in north central Ohio. Project evaluation data were gathered from pupils who had participated in the program, from the parents of these students, and from students' home room teachers, camp visitors, camp personnel, and workshop participants who had taken part in the 4 workshops sponsored by the Mohican School. The Evaluation Committee examined the data in terms of expected student gains in (1) specific knowledge, (2) utilization of the outdoors as a laboratory, (3) awareness of man's dependence on nature, (4) appreciation of nature's beauty, (5) adaptability to community living, and (6) understanding of national ecological problems. In general, the Mohican School has met the expectations of the planners. Operation of the school has suggested unexpected values which may contribute to better educational programs in the future. A bibliography and the questionnaires used in the evaluation are included in the document. Related documents are RC 004 246 and RC 004 247. (BD/GC)
