Building Strong Connections to Community: The Community as Learning Laboratory.
Starnes, Bobby Ann
Active Learner: A Foxfire Journal for Teachers, v4 n1 p40,39,38 Win 1999
Despite a growing interest in the relationship between community and classroom, there is no shared understanding of basic issues about roles and responsibilities. Teachers can use the community as a learning laboratory by connecting the content studied to aspects of the local community. Characteristics of successful learning-lab programs, barriers to success, and "entry" activities are discussed. (CDS)
