Place-based education: Top 10 tips for teachers!

As our Discovering Place teachers work through developing projects, here’s a fantastic list of top 10 tips that may help. This list was compiled by Jon Yoder, of Salem-Keizer School District, who spoke at the Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative’s 2011 conference on place-based education.

Teachers, please remember to e-mail your project development worksheets by this Friday, March 2.

Discovering Place is a program of University Outreach at the University of Michigan-Flint. One of eight hubs of the Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative, the program aims to help students develop into Flint community and environmental stewards. Working with Flint-area teachers and community partners, Discovering Place supports place-based education projects to help students connect with their surroundings.
