Classrooms in the Wild: Learning Language and Life Skills in the KUIS Outdoor Sports Circle.
Wurr, Adrian
The role of outdoor education activities in the Kanda University English language institute is described. The outdoor program was developed to unite faculty and students interested in recreational activities and provide an opportunity to explore common interests in nature, sports, and language learning. The activities develop self-esteem, leadership, trust, and interpersonal skills, with language used as the tool to describe and interpret experience. Students use kinesthetic, interpersonal, and intrapersonal forms of intelligence. Negotiation of activities enhances the student-centered nature of the program's design. The learning sequence in such an experiential program, and theories modeling it, is discussed. Contains 16 references. (MSE)
