Editorial Reviews

VOYA
This guide for teachers explains how to make the field trip an integral part of the learning process related to all that is happening in the classroom. The author cites the reasons for "place-based instruction," gives step-by-step instructions for activities, and concrete examples of successful programs that will inspire teachers to replicate them. Krishnaswami is a writer-in-residence at a national monument in Arizona, and she brings valid experience and background to using the ideas presented in the book. She covers topics such as teaching writing in special places, History Day programs, learning in both urban and national parks, accommodating students' special needs, taking outcomes back to the community, and making use of all state, local, and national resources available. She encourages teachers to plan activities that will result in a product that students can share with those who visit the site and the greater community. Teachers who read this book will be inspired to form community partnerships and take learning out of the classroom and into the real world. Full of practical, replicable ideas that will enhance students' learning and get teachers excited about the teaching process, this book is recommended for schools of all levels. Index. Illus. Photos. Biblio. Appendix. 2001, Shoe String, 154p, $25 pb. Ages Adult. Reviewer: Deborah L. Dubois SOURCE: VOYA, February 2002 (Vol. 24, No.6)
