The first curricular-focused outdoor learning textbook for prospective and practising K-12 teachers, Learning Outside the Classroom provides both academic justification and practical support for educators working in a wide variety of environments and with diverse student populations to incorporate more meaningful outdoor learning opportunities into their daily teaching activities. This book is not a set of prescriptive activities that can be read and used uncritically. The idea of adaptation for personal relevance is central. The guidelines and examples are intended to be adapted by teachers to suit the needs of their students in ways that draw upon content offered by the local landscape and its natural and built heritage. Nor is this book just about outdoor learning; it#xE2;#xAC;"s about good teaching #xE2;#xAC;#x1D; wherever it takes place. It is about helping teachers devise and use the tools with which they can address the largely uncontested assumption that legitimate learning only occurs within four walls. Learning outside the classroom affords teachers the privilege#xE3;#xAC;#xAC;of helping#xE3;#xAC;#xAC;and the joy of#xE3;#xAC;#xAC;observing students#xE3;#xAC;#xAC;in a process of intellectual, emotional, and social#xE3;#xAC;#xAC;growth that can last a lifetime.
