Field Trips in Geographic Education: An Annotated Bibliography. Instructional Activities Series IA/G-1.
Holtgrieve, Donald G.; Mathiason, Carol
Elementary and secondary school teachers can use this annotated bibliography to obtain information for planning, conducting, and evaluating field trips. It contains 125 references to journal articles and reports, most of which were published during the period 1960-75. Each entry provides author's name, title, source, date, and a one- or two-sentence annotation. Most of the items annotated have reference to geographic and environmental content at all school grade levels from one to 12. There are references to help the beginning teacher plan his or her first field trip. Several entries suggest safety tips for teachers, students, and bus drivers while traveling. Most of the references describe ideas for average classes, but at least five references are aimed specifically at retarded, economically disadvantaged, or exceptional children. Some describe local field trips within the community or state; others explain how long-distance, overnight trips can be planned. Observation guidelines for students are given, and follow-up activities might include drawing the most interesting things seen on the trip. A few entries describe aerial field trips, which are especially well suited to geographic study of particular regions. (AV)
