Stories in the Land: A Place-based Environmental Education Anthology (Nature Literacy) Reviews
This book elaborates on The Orion Society's mission to advance environmental, place-based education. This collection of stories from teachers in the field is insightful and provides concrete examples of how environmental education can be built into classroom curriculum no matter what part of the country you're from, what age/grade you teach and what sort of financial restraints are placed on the school.The most inspiring part of the book was hearing how teachers dramatically impacted the lives of their students by introducing them to the outdoors. The countless student success stories are uplifting, and make me hopeful that my children are taught by individuals with the same appreciation for the environment as those in this book.Each chapter concluded with a lesson plan that other teachers could implement in their classroom. I'm sure this would be helpful for classroom teachers, but I skimmed them - at best - because they had much less relevance to my situation.
