How Our Place Shows Us What We Need to Learn
Sorensen, Mark
Childhood Education, v93 n6 p493-499 2017
Too often, global education focuses on places far and foreign, and this can make the quest to create a peaceful and sustainable world seem overwhelming and unattainable. Mark Sorensen reminds us that we need not look any farther than our own place, right here and right now. By engaging students in their own context and looking to the existing knowledge of our place for solutions, we strengthen both the relevance of the educational experience and the sustainability of our community.
