The Report of the Curriculum Sub-Committee of the Committee for Outdoor Education. Richland, Huron, Knox, Crawford, and Ashland Counties.
Carpenter, Margaret; And Others
Rationale for an effective outdoor education program in several Ohio counties is presented. Five general purposes for outdoor education are given: (1) to teach specific knowledge, (2) to use the outdoors as a laboratory, (3) to show man's dependence on nature, (4) to increase appreciation of nature's beauty, and (5) to give the student opportunity for a 24-hour community living experience. Each of these purposes is analyzed with respect to specific curricular needs. Two models are proposed for an overall general curriculum. Methods and instruments for the evaluation of a program are given, and 16 recommendations are made for development of an optimum program. Related documents are RC 004 245 and RC 004 246. (BD)
