T98. Earth Science in Place-Based Teaching (Posters)
National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT); GSA Geoscience Education Division
Participants will share ideas on using geographically diverse "places" as contexts for teaching Earth science. Place-based teaching cultivates local knowledge and encourages the appreciation of landscapes. The "place" approach also incorporates important cultural and aesthetic insights.
