Toledo Public Schools: Operation Success; Teacher's Curriculum Guide.
Toledo Public Schools, OH.
The Toledo Public Schools developed this curriculum guide for the resident camp experience as a part of a new program especially designed for educating disadvantaged children. Emphasis at the camp is placed on young people learning to live as a community group where 8 to 10 students plus a counselor live in cabins for 5 days. The student group consists of 90 to 180 fifth and sixth graders. A rationale for outdoor education, the program's objectives, a daily schedule, and pre-outdoor-education suggestions are given in the first part of this 1971 guide. Also included are tips on classroom preparation, a teacher's check list, a discussion of teacher's responsibilities, follow-up suggestions, a counselor's briefing, rules and regulations at the resident outdoor school, and information for providing instruction in the following areas: weather, language arts, math and measurements, arts and crafts, science and conservation, animal-plant community study, animal tracking, insect study, and study of soil. Recreational and outdoor activities such as cookouts, fishing, and hiking are also outlined. (AN)
