This volume compiles descriptions of the work being done by rural students in 13 schools/sites with grants from the Annenberg Rural Challenge. The work reflects a belief in education that privileges the local nature of learning and connects schools and communities for their mutual benefit. Entries include focused lessons, long-term projects, and fully developed curricula, as well as practice-oriented stories and related personal reflections. Each entry includes contact information; academic content area; grade levels; length of time; a description; and, in some cases, samples of work. Projects include arts projects based on the local environment or culture, water and biodiversity projects, local history projects, and comprehensive projects that incorporate pedagogy of place into the curriculum or that promote deeper integration of school and community.
