Outdoor Education in Georgia.

Providing an overview of the Outdoor Education Workshop provided by the Georgia Migrant Education Program to give migrant students and staff an opportunity to learn new skills which they can then share with other migrant children upon their return to the regular school setting, the paper briefly discusses the administrative steps necessary when planning/implementing the workshop, program content, and evaluation. State objectives for the workshop are listed as broadening migrant children's educational horizons, promoting healthier human relations, increasing learning motivation, improving communication skills, developing appreciation of the beauty and order of the natural environment, enabling instructional staff to work more effectively with educationally disadvantaged children, and enhancing the children's self-concepts by providing success-oriented experiences. A planning chart indicates the personnel involved, i.e., state planning committee, coordinator, local education agency (LEA) superintendent and migrant staff, location planners, and presenters. Ten organizational tasks are listed, along with 10 planning suggestions. Including examples of a memo to LEA staff, tasks list and deadlines, parents permission form, presenter's form, and agenda for a 2-day workshop, the paper concludes with the evaluation forms for presenters, LEA staff, and students.
