Communities as Curricula.
Theobald, Paul; Curtiss, Jim
FORUM for Applied Research and Public Policy, v15 n1 p106-11 Spr 2000
Community-oriented pedagogy, or place-based schooling, uses schools as a source of community renewal, not community disintegration; allows students to construct their own understandings through interaction with the community environment; creates creative and critical thinkers who can also meet academic standards; and addresses our society's individualistic shortcomings. Rural examples of successful community-based curricula are described. (SV)
