Preparing Pupils for Resident Outdoor Education: A Guide Based on Two Classes of 6th Grade Pupils. The Protestant School Board of Greater Montreal, January 1975.
Mingie, Walter; And Others
The residential outdoor program involved 60 sixth grade students, divided into 5 groups, distributed as evenly as possible. Each group consisted of leaders, followers, and children with experience in the field and those without experience. Teachers were also divided into 5 groups, usually two or three working together. Each team of teachers chose two topics which they considered the most beneficial for their children's training. Each team taught both of their topics five times; thus, each group of children experienced all topics. Topics were: cooking, music, first aid, waterproofing, erosion and land forms, shelters and latrines, trees, American Indian lore, orienteering, water safety, and tracks identification. A general session was held for all children and staff to learn folk dancing. This guide briefly outlines the pupils' preparation in each topic for their residential outdoors school. (NQ)
