Place-based Education


Teacher Notes

 When I taught I frequently brought in guest speakers such as lawyers (Lawyers in the Classroom Program), authors, an architect, community leaders and business people. I also took my classes on field trips to explore historic community sites, museums, businesses and the courts. I was also a part of a unique Health Careers Program.

Where I currently live in Florida they won't even allow me to come in to the classroom as a guest author to have me show them that I use the same writing process that they use to write reports.  They also do not take students out on field trips.
