Outdoor Education Classes
Classes are specifically designed with your school in mind. Learning comes alive when students experience the natural world first hand. We strive to connect the Taft experience to subjects students are learning in the classroom. Classes can be designed around a central theme, Illinois State Learning Standards, or interdisciplinary approaches.
Classes are taught by a combination of Lorado Taft teaching staff and your school teaching team.
A Taft staff member serves as the coordinator for your school. Coordinators travel to schools about 4 to 6 weeks before your trip to Taft and meet with your school's teaching team. At this meeting, educational goals, class preferences, lesson plans, dormitory and meal needs are discussed.
