Description:
Help your students meet curriculum goals while they build a connection to the community. Place-based education uses your neighborhood as the starting point for a wide range of investigations, and equips them to branch out to the larger world from a familiar starting point. A major strand of the workshop involves learning how to use GIS to enhance students' ability to investigate their community.
