Place-Based Curriculum and Instruction: Outdoor and Environmental Education Approaches. ERIC Digest

This digest reviews place-based curriculum and instruction, especially as it relates to outdoor and environmental education, and provides examples of K-12 resources and programs. A brief review identifies the purposes of outdoor education, environmental education, and place-based education and the relationships among them, and points out overlapping concepts in the literature: community-oriented schooling, ecological education, bioregional education, ecoliteracy, ecological identity, and pedagogy of place.
