Linking Classroom Teaching to the Real World Through Experiential Instruction.
Byerly, Steven
Phi Delta Kappan, v82 n9 p697-99 May 2001
Students and teachers in Pierce School District in Arbuckle, California, re-enacted an 1840s wagon train. Staff and students dressed authentically, turning thrift-store outfits into period garb. The 4-day simulation instilled knowledge in students and helped them think more critically. True instructional innovation comes from the bottom up. (MLH)
