Preservice Day Session: Using Place-Based Education to Teach Beyond the Test

Wednesday, May 5 • 5:00 PM - 5:45 PM

STRAND: Community and Global Impacts on Classroom Learning

Show Details

Learn how to incorporate place-based learning within your instruction to allow ALL students to apply their factual knowledge in practical, meaningful ways within a relevant context.

1. Construct a deeper understanding of the content presented in state curriculum standards; 2. View experiential learning events as a critical aspect of science education in their classrooms; and 3. Discover how investigations of local natural phenomena can serve as the foundation on which investigations of more distant or abstract phenomena can be constructed.
