Geointerpretative Opportunities Foster Learning outside the Classroom
Thompson, Wiley C.
Journal of Geography, v109 n3 p124-129 2010
Field trips have long been a part of school activities, learning, and curriculum. The application of interpretive techniques or the interpretive approach can further enhance learning and retention in outside the classroom opportunities. This is especially true when exploring geographic or geologic concepts. This article explores the concept of interpretation and provides an example of an interpretive opportunity developed for local schools. Recommendations on how to develop an effective interpretive program are discussed. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
