Direct Experience Teaching in the Out-of-Doors.
Blomberg, Karin
The method used to prove the value of direct experience teaching in the out-of-doors was taking children on short field trips and excursions and evaluating their attitudes and behavior as well as their accomplishments. Trips ranged from 10 minutes to 2 hours with a 6th grade class. The experiments took place for a period of 9 years (1955-1964). Experiences were on subject areas such as science activities, mathematics, language arts, social studies, art and music. The results of the activities were recorded by the writer in the form of notes on the reactions, discoveries, and creativity of the children. It was concluded that direct experience teaching in the out-of-doors will result in broader and richer educational opportunities and will provide a better climate for learning. (CM)
