This review is from: Dirty Teaching: A Beginner's Guide to Learning Outdoors (Paperback)
This book certainly deserves 5 stars. Juliet has anticipated any doubts you might have about the efficacy of outdoor learning and illustrates with clear examples how to get out there with confidence. What I like most about this book is that she doesn't gloss over the difficulties. She faces them head on, acknowledging the fears and exploring solutions.Outdoor learning demands a high level of skill and commitment and opens a whole other world of being with children.Juliet looks at this world alongside the reader, encouraging a creative approach to the curriculum. In thinking for oneself the reader is also invited to consider their own professional development and needs. A reciprocal learning process is advocated here between children and adults, people and their environment. This book is a must for everyone who works with children.
