Description: This volume—a landmark contribution to the burgeoning theory and practice of place-based education—enriches the field in three ways: First, it frames place-based pedagogy not just as an alternative teaching methodology or novel approach to environmental education but as part of a broader social movement known as the "new localism," which aims toward reclaiming the significance of the local in the global age. Second, it links the development of ecological awareness and stewardship to concerns about equity and cultural diversity. Third, it presents examples of place-based education in action. The relationship between the new localism and place-based education is clarified, and the process of making connections between learners and their wider communities is demonstrated. The book is organized around three themes: *Reclaiming Broader Meanings of Education; *Models for Place-Based Learning; and *Global Visions of the Local in Higher Education nbsp; This is a powerfully relevant volume for researchers, teacher educators, and students across the fields ofnbsp;curriculum theory, educational foundations, critical pedagogy, multicultural education, and environmental education.
