10-Second Review: College students prepare teachers’ guides to museums, etc., that help teachers get the most from their students’ experiences on field trips.
Title: “Community Collaboration Using a Unique Gallery as a Literary Resource.” AN Voelker. Language Arts (May 2008), 366-375. A publication of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).
Summary: College students provide teachers with before, during and after activities.
Comment: Raise your hand if you have experienced this type of preparation and follow-through in student field trips. Didn't think so. Whoever created the guide would help make field trips real educational experiences. RayS.
The purpose of this blog is to share interesting ideas I have found in recent American professional publications dealing with the teaching of English at all levels, elementary, secondary and college.
