Summary Evaluation for a School-Community Outdoor Education Project.
Crystal Lake Community School District 47, IL.
A summary evaluation of the Crystal Lake, Illinois outdoor education program is contained in this document. The project entitled "A School-Community Outdoor Education Project" is a year round program for teaching in, for, and about the outdoors. Designed largely to assist teachers to meet educational objectives relating to the out-of-doors and man's environment, the program was also planned to enrich learning in all subject areas. Major attention of the report focuses on the testing of pupils and the reactions of those involved in the program-initiators, assistees, and recipients. Analysis and evaluation is made of the comments by teachers, administrators, pupils, parents and community agents, along with recommendations for future programs. The narrative report suggests the greatest educational change in the three year project has been in teaching methodology--increased use of the out-of-doors in all subjects. Another gain has been the increased community-relatedness of the schools through cooperation of agencies and individuals with the school programs. Statistical data and sample dissemination materials are also presented. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (BL)
