When the Wilderness Becomes a Classroom.
Herdman, Paul
Educational Leadership, v52 n3 p15-19 Nov 1994
Describes a New York City high school's experience with Outward Bound, a cooperatively funded experiential learning program. Rock climbing was used to teach youngsters how to deal with the metaphorical walls facing everyone. The program's success (a 90% graduation rate) depended on faculty commitment, administrative support, motivated student participants, adequate funding, large time blocks, and a low student/teacher ratio.
