Outdoor Education - A Guide to Site Planning and Implementation of Programs.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Curriculum Development.
This booklet presents guidelines for initiating outdoor instructional programs. Initially, the guide lists the objectives of outdoor education: survival, recreation, development of personal health and well-being, career opportunities, and social adjustment. A discussion follows on the three phases of site planning. The first phase is site analysis which involves research in topography, ecology, and land uses and control. The second phase encompasses program development which includes the statement of purpose and objectives, the role of the school site, and analysis of these roles for program development. The final phase concerns site design or a graphic representation combining site analysis and program development. The booklet also contains examples of school sites, a checklist for developing a program, guidelines for planning activities in all curricular areas, suggested learning experiences in each discipline, and resource and reference lists.
