The Outdoor Classroom:
Integrating Education and Adventure
James R. Jelmberg, Greg S. Goodman, Mary Breunig and Jon McLaren
This book is an inspirational instruction guide for teachers and other educators and naturalists working with students in grades four through college. It is also useful for instructors teaching courses in experiential education, outdoor education, recreation and curriculum methods.
The book breaks new ground by linking academic studies with adventure learning. Its first part articulates the role of experiential education and the values of multicultural education. The second part focuses on the practice of experiential education, providing clear how-to instructions for planning, organizing, conducting and evaluating outdoor education as a way of improving student achievement. The third part focuses on reasons to pursue this career and what its rewards might be. Scholarly, but with loads of practical suggestions and ideas.
