This publication describes over 100 activity-oriented programs in which students learn through a combination of direct experience and associated instruction or reflection. Students are involved in cross-age tutoring, community services, on-the-job work experiences, foreign or domestic travel with an organized group, political campaigns, field trips, art show-productions, movie making, and still photography. Information was gathered in the spring of 1975 when the Student Community Involvement Project of the University of Minnesota and the Minnesota Association of Secondary School Principals sent out a questionnaire to all secondary schools in the state to determine how many of them had adopted action learning. Names to contract for further information on the projects are provided for each school. Additional resources and references are also included.
