Title III Project in Outdoor and Conservation Education; School Districts, Town of North Hempstead. Project Summary Report.
The document contains Part II, Narrative Report for End of Budget Period, and Part III, End of Year Evaluation Report, for the school districts of North Hempstead, New York. During the period from September of 1968 to September of 1969, under funds from Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the North Hempstead districts began the third year of operating this project on outdoor and conservation education. The major outcome of the third year was expansion of the resident school camping program to include more students and more districts. Approximately 8700 students participated in at least 1 of the 184 experiences provided for them during the third year. Curriculum extensions were recommended for social studies, camping skills, marine biology, ecology, nature study, astronomy, meteorology, and geology. A handbook of sites, recommended activities, suitable grade levels, and pertinent planning information was developed and distributed. Other positive results included streamlining of the objectives and improved techniques of project evaluation. (BD)
