PLACED-BASED LEARNING

General Information (Next session TBA) 

RWP’s place-based learning series provides research-supported training and structures for designing and incorporating place-based learning into the classroom.  We will demonstrate how to apply this concept by taking participants on field trips to local sites. At each site, we will examine how a place-based curriculum can promote active, relevant, and standards-aligned learning. Participants will also have time to design their own field trips/activities.  Participants wanting to earn a full unit of credit will then take the place-based model and design field trips/activities for their own classes, demonstrate how they will incorporate writing into such activities, and present their units/finds at the final session.
