The Scope of Outdoor Education.
Smith, Julian W.
Bulletin of the National Association of Secondary-School Principals, v44 n256 p157-9 May 1960
Outdoor education represents a practical and sound approach in the achievement of accepted educationa l objectives through the utilization of current resources available to the learning process, and not the addition of another discipline to the curriculum. One of the most sensational and successful programs of outdoor education has been the introduction of school camping through the utilization of existing resources . These outings commonly last a week and cover a wide variety of instructional units from physical education to the social sciences . Another use of outdoor resources has been the establishment of laboratories in the out of doors, covering a wide range of instructional units from the physical sciences, physical education, social sciences, and English.
