Skliar, Norman, Ed.
The New York State Outdoor Education Association is dedicated to: (1) the professional improvement of persons interested and involved in outdoor education, and (2) the development of attitudes, values, and behavior necessary for the wise use of natural resources. Its major goal is the enrichment of educational curriculums through the use of the outdoors as a living and learning laboratory. "The Communicator", the Association's official journal, consists of articles contributed by outstanding authorities in outdoor education. Due to numerous requests for back issues of "The Communicator", this booklet provides 30 articles which appeared in various issues between 1970 and 1975. Addressing the Association's goals, the articles deal with outdoor education philosophy and methodology, ecological classrooms, resident camping experiences, teaching tips, and classroom projects. Among the topics are: outdoor education in the educative process, basic considerations for outdoor education, environmental programs, nature trails, professional preparation in outdoor education, teaching social studies and art outdoors, orienteering, survival, the outdoors as a learning center, ecology, and the environmental crisis.
