Summary

The culmination of educational experiences in the outdoors is the resident outdoor education program. Involving teachers and pupils living and learning in the natural environment, the program emphasizes the development of human values and provides students with learning opportunities that focus on direct, real, and relevant experiences. Intended to provide school district administrators and teachers with guidance and direction in planning and conducting resident programs, this guide presents basic policies and procedures essential to the success of resident outdoor education experiences. The guide discusses methods for planning and financing the program; selection of the site and facilities; program personnel--resident director, program specialist, instructional personnel, cook, doctor, nurse, maintenance staff, and secretary; the classroom teacher's role; and resources and materials--community leaders, national, state and local organizations, printed resources, audiovisual aids, and program equipment. Activities to be used in the program are listed along with suggested evaluative techniques. Appended are the New York State Education Law, the New York State Sanitary Code, evaluation forms, and a list of 21 resident outdoor education centers in New York State. (NQ)
