The Significance of Participation in Extramural Activities: An Annotated Bibliography.
This annotated bibliography of 29 citations deals with the significance of extracurricular activities in the total educational process. There is a strong correlation between student involvement in extracurricular activities at the high school level and adult nonacademic achievement in later life. Aspects reported to be positively influenced by student participation are: (1) persistence; (2) academic achievement; (3) career planning; (4) human relationships; and (5) moral development. Ethnicity, school size, and exclusion were identified as three important factors influencing students' participation. Four case studies are included to illustrate the importance of extracurricular involvement in different situations for students as well as people outside the school structure. (SI)
