Place-based Education
Place-based education seeks to help communities through employing students and school staff in solving community problems. Place-based education differs from conventional text and classroom-based education in that it understands students' local community as one of the primary resources for learning. Thus, place-based education promotes learning that is rooted in what is local-the unique history, environment, culture, economy, literature, and art of a particular place -that is, in students' own "place" or immediate schoolyard, neighborhood, town or community. - Laurie Lane-Zucker, 2016
