Active Learner: A Foxfire Journal for Teachers, v4 n3 p26-29 Fall 1999
A teacher of a special education class of 7- to 10-year-olds took her students outdoors to stimulate their interest in learning. Schoolyard nature study and environmental field trips led to schoolwide presentations and television performances about recycling and conservation. Peer teaching was an important learning strategy. These students outperformed mainstream classes in areas of science achievement. (SV)
