An Annotated Bibliography of the Literature and Research on Outward Bound and Related Programs.
Pollak, R. Timothy
Feeling the need for a concise summary of research conducted on Outward Bound Activities, the North Carolina Outward Bound School commissioned this annotated bibliography. Approximately 110 listings are included, each accompanied by a brief abstract identifying the principal features and findings of the work listed. The bibliography is divided into nine sections. The first section on Outward Bound standard courses includes 22 references. The second section features 7 references on teacher training and practica courses. Fourteen listings are included in the section on secondary school adaptive programs with nine more described in the section on higher education adaptive programs. Adaptive programs for delinquents are described in 11 references, and adaptive programs for psychologically impaired in 5 listings. There are 24 participant observer reports and theoretical investigations listed. Eleven book titles are cited, and the final section lists nine planning guides and miscellaneous reports. The publications listed in the bibliography were published between 1966 and 1975 and include such materials as reports, papers, conference proceedings, theses, dissertations, journal articles, evaluations, and Outward Bound School publications.
