The Excursion as a Means of Education

by Thomas H. Briggs 1921

The activities of a school are determined by its purposes. If these are to teach pupils to do better the desirable things that they will do anyway and to reveal higher activities, at the same time making them desired and to an extent possible, then the excursion becomes important. By it the school is enabled to acquaint pupils with the various museums, memorials, industries, and natural phenomena of a community, thus making them intelligent concerning their environment and widening in a systematic way their interests. At the same time it is enabled to enrich various courses and to motivate work. The excursion furnishes a series of projects which offer unsurpassed opportunities for initiative, cooperation, and the judging of relative values.
