The Effectiveness of Field Trips Compared to Media in Teaching Selected Environmental Concepts.
Brady, Eugene Ralph
The effectiveness of field trips compared to media in teaching selected environmental concepts was studied using 99 general biology students as the population. Students in the experimental group were taken on eight field trips, each designed to teach a praticular concept. Those in the control group were exposed to the same concepts through the use of media. Two areas were evaluated: student achievement and student attitude. In addition, the interaction between treatment and sex was investigated. Results of the study show both field trips and media can be used as successful teaching methods in presenting selected environmental concepts; no significant difference in achievement or attitude occurred between bosy and girls; and both methods resulted in a significant change in attitude toward current environmental problems. In both cases the change was considered to be a more positive attitude toward the problems. (BL)
