Tennessee Valley Authority (Land Between the Lakes), Golden Pond, KY.
An outdoor education workshop, initiated at the request of teachers in the Bear Creek Watershed area (Alabama), was conducted through a cooperative effort of local agencies and offices of the Tennessee Valley Authority. The purpose of the workshop was to demonstrate to the teachers how the outdoors can be utilized to introduce, strengthen, and emphasize concepts of the school curriculum. Methods and techniques for teaching in the out-of-doors were identified for the following curriculum areas: science, language arts, social studies, creative arts, and mathematics. Lesson plans, developed by the teachers during the workshop and related to the above curriculum areas are compiled in this booklet. In general they specify: subject category, contributor's name, title of activity, grade level, major concept, purpose and objectives, materials required, procedures to follow, vocabulary words, related activities, resources, and evaluation. Lists of resource personnel and participants, the workshop schedule, and a reference list of books, pamphlets, and films supplement the lesson plans. (BL)
