Place-Based Education: A Visual Field Trip Across North America led by David Sobel, Antioch University

April 24, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

The landscape of schooling has begun to look like the sprawl of America. Generic textbooks designed for the big markets of California and Texas provide the same homogenized, unhealthy diet as all those fast food places on the strip. Educational biodiversity falls prey to the bulldozers of standardization. What is nearby has become parochial and insignificant.

Place-based education is a response to the alienation of schools from community, and the decoupling of schools from historic sites, local landscapes, and farms. Instead, we need schools organized around the principles of the farmers’ market, drawing on the resources and variety of the local community. Let’s travel across America to see examples of vibrant, place-based education that highlights students and teachers engaged in their local history, environments and communities.
