Place-Based Education: Connecting Classrooms and Communities. Closing the Achievement Gap: The SEER Report
Sobel, David
NAMTA Journal, p39 n1 p61-78 Win 2014
As research today is often required to validate innovative aspects of education, David Sobel's analysis of the SEER report makes quantitative sense of nature education and its ability to improve learning. Test scores increase, attendance surges, language arts assessments show richer self-expression, speaking skills gain a community cause, math engagement flourishes, and students do science and not just study science. Environmental education combined with service learning takes the school into a higher purpose and creates rich learning incentives.
