School's Out(doors): Place-based Education Responds to COVID-19 and Beyond
This exciting new resource was created by PEER Associates in collaboration with the Upper Valley Teaching Place Collaborative, the National Park Service, and Shelburne Farms.
Place-based education has always been a powerful approach to learning, but now it’s also a powerful answer to COVID-19. This booklet is designed to be the starting point for anyone wanting to do more place-based education. It summarizes main talking points and research evidence so you can make the case for place-based education, includes exemplar stories, and, importantly, lists experts who are willing to help support next action steps for people like you and the people you work with. It’s great for to share with principals, park administrators, community partners, parents, or anyone else looking to dive into place-based education with you!
