NCSS Travel Study Guidelines.
Wicks, Raymond E.
These guidelines were designed for teachers, school administrators, parents, and students to aid their investigation and selection of foreign excursion programs. There are hundreds of travel programs available to high school and college students. Some provide formal education; some include living with a host family, while others feature guided tours and extensive travel through several countries. The guidelines consist of statements that can be rated according to the organization and operation of a foreign excursion program. Statements deal with program sponsor and features, excursion goals, leaders and instructors, selection of participants, orientation, excursion activities, conclusion of the excursion, and post-trip participant activities. The statements form a basis for investigating the foreign excursion programs by suggesting questions to be asked and information to be gathered. (RM)
