Recreative Arts Outdoor Education.
Emphasizing an interdisciplinary, experiential learning approach, this curriculum guide is designed for a one year recreative arts-outdoor education course for high school students in the Dallas (Texas) Independent School District. The course objective is to develop the skills and knowledge necessary for fostering responsible behavior in an outdoor setting; study of the environment is basic to the course. The nine four-week units include identification of all Texas fish and wildlife, the American Red Cross Standard First Aid Course, the Texas Hunter Safety Program, archery, survival, camping, boating safety (Texas Skippers Course), casting and angling in Texas, and horseshoe pitching. Each topic in a unit is described in terms of goals, projects, and activities. Resources and supporting materials for both teachers and students are detailed and include films, filmstrips, maps, periodicals, pamphlets and books. The units devoted to first aid and hunter and boating safety can result in student certification by the appropriate organization upon successful completion and testing. (NEC)
