The Teacher's Handbook for the Outdoor School.
Gilfillan, Warren C.; Burgess, Robert A.
Active preparation, participation, and follow-up by the classroom teacher are essential to the success of the Outdoor School, a week-long, resident, co-educational program of outdoor education for Multnomah County (Oregon) sixth grade classes and their teachers. This handbook briefly describes the classroom teacher's role; the resource study session; the teacher-class meeting; and the responsibilities of the teacher, site supervisor, resource specialists, senior and junior counselors, and nurse. Brief information is provided on the teacher's on-site workshop; staff visitation; literature, visual aids, printed materials, and films; student preparation; parent orientation; evaluation of the Outdoor School; and classroom visitation by junior counselors. The handbook includes a listing of some things that can be done to correlate outdoor education with social studies, language arts, mathematics, science, musc, art, health, safety, and physical education; specific information for teachers pertaining to duties before going to the Outdoor School, bus departure and arrival, arrival at the Outdoor School, general assembly, dining hall procedure, and discipline; teacher-class, teacher-junior counselor, and after-campfire meetings; staff policies, insurance, and last day and evening at the Outdoor School; and a clothing and equipment checklist. Ideas for teacher preparation, a copy of the class list and living group assignment forms, and suggestions for the teacher-class meeting are appended. (NQA)
