The ABC's of Adventure-Based Learning
Stuhr, Paul T.; Sutherland, Sue; Ressler, Jim; Ortiz-Stuhr, Esther M.
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v29 n1 p3-9 2016
Adventure-based learning (ABL) consists of highly structured physical activity with periods of reflection (i.e., debrief) that help promote personal and social development. It can be used as a valid curriculum in physical education to promote intrapersonal and interpersonal relationships. This type of curriculum can also help physical educators demonstrate student-learning outcomes associated with SHAPE America National Standard 4, which focuses on responsible personal and social behavior. The purpose of this article is to provide an alphabetical list of pragmatic adventure practices, tips, terminology and related resources for physical educators who would like to learn more about this type of curriculum. Using an alphabetical list as a framework allows novice-to-experienced educators to briefly read about a variety of ABL best practices and (if so desired) pursue those topics further by using the resources referenced throughout the article.
