Full version Inquiry- And Community-Based Education: K-12 Curriculum Design Review
Designed for pre-service teachers, this text provides both the rationale and tools to create and integrate meaningful, place-based learning experiences for students. Practical, classroom-based curricular examples illustrate how teachers can engage the local and still be accountable to the existing demands of federal, state, and district mandates. Coverage includes connecting the curriculum to students outside-of-school lives, using local phenomena or issues to enhance students understanding of discipline-based questions, engaging in in-depth explorations of local issues to create cross-disciplinary learning experiences, and creating units or sustained learning experiences aimed at engendering social and environmental renewal. An on-line resource provides supplementary materials, including curricular templates, case studies, tools for reflective practice, and additional materials for instructors and students. "
