Field trips in the age of high-stakes tests.

Post by shawn » Tue Mar 27, 2007 10:24 pm

Are high stakes tests used as an excuse for avoiding the extra labor of enriching curriculum with trips that will have more long-term impact on students than a week of standard lessons?
After years of teaching astronomy, I finally took my students out with a telescope I had all along but never took to school. I regret not doing it the first year I could.
