NEW TOOL: How place-based science education strategies can support equity for students, teachers, and communities

Posted on March 10, 2019

In science education we often underestimate the importance of learning and relating scientific knowledge to specific places. Place-based education is a major strategy for promoting equity, but it is still relatively rare in practice. This new resource highlights the crucial equity and justice opportunities associated with learning science in and about specific places—in deep partnership with community. Specific strategies and resources are shared along with relevant background information on the approach. It was co-authored by Sarah Coleman, Pauline Chinn, Deb Morrison, and Lauren Kaupp.
