How Effective Are Outdoor Education Centres?
Eaton, Dennis
Pathways: The Ontario Journal of Outdoor Education, v11 n5 p4-8 Aug 1999
Twelve classes of students in grades 4 through 6 studied beaver ecology, either at an outdoor-education center near Toronto or in the classroom. Results indicate that outdoor education was more effective in promoting students' cognitive achievement than classroom study, but did not confirm the popular belief that outdoor programs influence environmental attitudes. Contains 22 references. (CDS)
