Readings in Experiential Education: A Compendium of Model Programs.
Kimball, Richard Owen; Ratliff, Stan
This report describes ten experiential education programs located throughout the United States. The principal objective of these programs is to improve the self-image of high school and college students through a series of challenging, adventuresome, and success-oriented outdoor experiences. Appreciation of outdoor science education, conservation issues, an historic sense of what early settlers faced, and an attempt to make school exciting also result from the programs. Thistledew Camp, Togo, Minnesota; Operation Breakout, Cedar Hill, Missouri; Discovery Land, Inc., Bryan, Texas; and Project Apollo, Murray State University, Murray, Kentucky enroll the poor and the underachiever. The East High School Seminar, Denver, Colorado, targets itself to a group of 90 racially mixed high school seniors. The Learning/Living Term Program of Dartmouth College, Dartmouth, New Hampshire; Wilderness Workshop, Potsdam State College, Potsdam, New York; and the Survival, Urgency, Recreation, Growth, and Enthusiasm Program (S.U.R.G.E.) of Boston University offer programs for college students. In the Wilderness Environmental Seminars, San Juan Unified School District, Carmichael, California; and the Boulder Valley Institute, Lafayette, Colorado any student is encouraged to enroll. Project directors and official addresses are provided for further information. (DE)
