Abstract

This thesis provides an overview of place-based education. It begins by defining the practice and distinguishing it from other similar practices such as outdoor, environmental, and experiential education. An analysis of place sets the foundation for discussing the main benefits of place-based education including, academic achievement and connection with community and nature. This overview ultimately informs the final chapter, which includes a place-based lesson plan created for Kim Finnerty of Whiting Farm.
