What is place-based education? Place-based education synthesizes local heritage, culture, landscapes, opportunities and experiences, as a foundation for the study of language arts, math, social studies, science and other subjects across the curriculum. Place-based education often extends beyond the classroom through participation in community and/or school service projects.
