Place-Based Education: Connecting Classrooms and Communities
Description: Place-based education is the process of using the local community and environment as a starting point to teach concepts of the language arts, mathematics, social studies, science, and other subjects across the curriculum. Emphasizing hands-on, real-world learning experiences, this approach to education increases academic achievement, helps students develop strong ties to their community, enhances students' appreciation for the natural world, and creates a heightened commitment to serving as active, contributing citizens.
