Basic Steps in Planning Resident Outdoor Education Programs.
Nassau County Board of Cooperative Educational Services, Westbury, NY.
Intended to serve as a planning guide for teachers who become involved for the first time in the resident camping phase of an outdoor education program, this document answers the question of where to initiate the planning process and what sequential form the process should follow. Site familiarization is the first step to be taken, and information from this step can be used later in student-parent orientation. Selection and organization of the curriculum come next and rely heavily on local resources and the needs of the student who should be involved in this step. Time scheduling is next and includes items which are constant such as mealtimes, activity periods for the major portion of the day, evening programs, and inclement weather provisions. Organization and scheduling of student duties, such as dining hall chores and bunk cleaning, complete the list. A final suggestion is to use checklists so that nothing will be overlooked in preparing for smooth program operation. (BD)
