Directory of Selected State Outdoor Education Programs: State Responses to a 1979 Query Conducted by the Council on Outdoor Education/AAHPERD.
Conrad, Judi, Comp.
Nearly 1200 on-going outdoor education programs, projects, and/or curricula in U.S. elementary and secondary schools are listed and annotated in this 1979 directory, the result of a national survey sponsored by the Council on Outdoor Education within the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (AAHPERD). Following a brief introduction describing the purpose, method, and funding of the survey, results for each survey item are presented in tabular form. A state-by-state comparison of responses is included. Listings of outdoor education activity in 16 states are then organized alphabetically by location within each state. For each listing the name and address of the school or school district are given along with the name of the program's contact person. The annotation describes grade level involvement, program emphasis, disciplines involved, physical activity emphasis, resources outside the classroom, classes conducted outside the classroom, the program itself, program evaluation, and accompanying resident program, if any. Names and addresses only are listed for outdoor education programs in the state of California. Finally there is a list of the names and addresses of approximately 350 resident programs in 34 states and Washington, D.C. (SB)
