Teacher Perceptions of Field-Trip Planning and Implementation

September 1st, 2003 | RESEARCH

This article reports on some of the outcomes of a study that investigated the factors influencing K-7 teachers' decisions to make field-trip visits in Vancouver, Canada. The key outcomes emergent from the study, in the context of the city of Vancouver, its many field-trip venues and its teachers, have relevance for both educators and museum policy makers in other metropolitan areas. The authors address issues that call for reflection on assumptions that might be deeply entrenched and also affirm and reiterate the findings of contemporary studies of teacher perceptions regarding field-trip visits.
