School field trips--Kentucky--Louisville; Ohio River Valley--Study and teaching (Elementary)


In January, 1947, the social studies unit, "The Ohio Valley (The Middle states)," was distributed to all Louisville Elementary Schools to be accessible to the fifth grade teachers. This unit, prepared and written by the Division of Curriculum and Research under Dr. John Dotson, will be described in greater detail in Chapter IV of this study. As a teacher in the Louisville Elementary Schools for the last seven years, with experience in the fifth grade the past five, the writer has felt a need for class excursions to clarify the thinking of the fifth grade pupils and to enrich the curriculum by such first-hand experiences.
