Krepel, Wayne J.; DuVall, Charles R.
This publication stresses the existence of a wide range of instructional resources available to teachers planning field trips. The first chapter presents a brief history of educational field trips and their value as teaching tools. Teacher liability and school board policies are also discussed. Chapter Two deals with the details that must accompany the planning of field trips. Administrative support, teacher responsibilities, safety, and supervisory assistance are discussed. Consideration is also given to the trip itself, followup activities, and the evaluation of the trip. In the third chapter, ideas and strategies are offered for subject-oriented trips involving art, career education, handicapped individuals, home economics, industrial arts, language arts, mathematics, music, science, social studies, interdisciplinary trips, and international travel. Recommended readings on field trips are appended. (JD)
