Bott, Kristine Ann; Bannasch, Donald Max
Funded through the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title III, the Project began serving youngsters handicapped either physically, mentally, or emotionally, who qualified for special education services in the fall of 1971. Among its objectives were to: (1) improve these youngsters' achievement in reqular school subjects, their self-concepts, interpersonal relationships, and leisure skill; (2) train special education teachers to use the outdoors to provide learning opportunities to these youngsters; and (3) test an outdoor education model for improving the learning and lives of these children. The manual and filmstrips were created to disseminate ideas which were collected and found successful during 3 years of operation. Divided into sections by tabs for easy reference, the manual suggests methods and procedures in the sequence necessary to set up and carry out an outdoor laboratory experience. Among the topics covered are: teacher in-service, preplanning, the outdoor laboratory site, schedules, insurance, transportation, first aid, camp rules, kitchen duties, equipment, math, science, social studies, language arts, music, physical education, arts and crafts, fire, hikes and scavenger hunts, rainy day activities, winter activities, evaluation, disability considerations, permission slips and health forms, counselors, and resource people.
