This edited volume explores 21st century stories of hunting, foraging, and fishing for food as unique forms of place-based learning. Through the authors’ narratives, it reveals complex social and ecological relationships while readers sample the flavors of foraging in Portland, Oregon; feel some of what it’s like to grow up hunting and gathering as a person of Oglala Lakota and Shoshone-Bannock descent; track the immersive process of learning to communicate with rocky mountain elk; encounter a road-killed deer as a spontaneous source of local meat, and more. Other topics in the collection connect place, food, and learning to issues of identity, activism, spirituality, food movements, conservation, traditional and elder knowledge, and the ethics related to eating the more-than-human world. This volume will bring lively discussion to courses on place-based learning, food studies, environmental education, outdoor recreation, experiential education, holistic learning, human dimensions of natural resource management, sustainability, food systems, environmental ethics, and others.

"Polished, clear, insightful, and meaningful.... This volume amounts to nothing less than a complete rethinking of what progressive education can be at its best and how education can be reconceptualized as one of the central practices of a genuinely democratic and sustainable society.... It is the kind of book that has the potential to be transformative." Stephen Preskill, University of New Mexico "The editors and contributors are pioneers in the field of educational theory, policy, and philosophy.... They are opening new areas of inquiry and educational reform in ways that promise to make this book in very short time into a classic.... The practical applications and experiments included reveal the richness of grassroots initiatives already underway to bring educational theory and policy down to earth. While spanning the richest and deepest intellectual ideas and concepts, the stories told are the types that practitioners and teachers will be able to relate to in their daily undertakings." Madhu Suri Prakash, The Pennsylvania State University 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 "Anew 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 This is a powerfully relevant volume for researchers, teacher educators, and students across the fields of curriculum theory, educational foundations, critical pedagogy, multicultural education, and environmental education.

“As an elementary school principal and former teacher educator, I highly recommend this book. It is an essential professional development tool for promoting effective teaching and learning. I bought the 2nd edition of this book for my entire staff. The content of the book centralizes authentic, student-driven project work that leads to positive outcomes for elementary and early childhood students.” —Tricia DeGraff, Principal, Academy for Integrated Arts Now in its Third Edition, Young Investigators provides an introduction to the project approach with step-by-step guidance for conducting meaningful investigations with young children. The authors have expanded their bestseller to include two new chapters—How Projects Can Connect Children with Nature and Project Investigations as STEM—and to provide more help to teachers of the youngest children (toddlers) and older children (2nd grade). The new edition also shows teachers how to use standards in the topic selection process and identifies activities and experiences that will help children grasp key concepts and skills. Throughout the text, readers listen to teachers’ concerns, witness how they find solutions to challenges, and experience how excited children become during project work. This book is appropriate for those new to using the Project Approach, as well as for teachers who already have experience with implementing the Project Approach. Praise for Previous Editions: “Everything you could possibly need to start a project is covered in this book, so start investigating!” —Association for Childhood Education International “A readable and extremely valuable book…includes a planning journal with step-by-step guidance for doing a first project with young children.” —Child Care Plus “Along with tips on how to get started and successfully carry out this approach, readers will find methodologies for maintaining curricular standards and utilizing technology.” —ENC Focus

This book was written for everyone who wants to provide age-appropriate movement activities for preschool and early elementary age children. Physical education teachers, classroom teachers, daycare specialists, and before and after school activity directors now have a resource that can help them provide the nationally recommended 60 minutes per day of "structured" physical activity. Over 100 lesson plans, presented in an easy-to-use format, will expand children's movement knowledge and abilities while using basic academic concepts. Teachers will appreciate the new and innovative approaches to reinforce learning standards. The activities are non-competitive and most address the all-too-common problem of limited space and resources, because they do not require equipment or a special setting. Readers will develop an understanding of the basic foundation of movement-based learning and the key components of the imitative and movement exploration approaches to teaching basic movement skills and concepts. Readers will find it very easy to use these two approaches by following the practical examples and implementation strategies that are provided in the book. The lesson plans in each chapter focus on age-appropriate academic concepts that children are learning in the classroom and include activities that progress from simple to more complex physical challenges. Each simplified lesson plan identifies the national physical education standard(s) emphasized, primary learning objective, any materials needed, individual or partner activities, whole-group activities, and creative closure questions. - Chapter Two presents movement activities that focus on language arts skills the alphabet, rhyming, shapes, and expressing stories through movement. - Chapter Three focuses on increasing children's understanding of their body, the importance of eating healthy foods, and the need for daily physical activity. - Chapter Four focuses on community awareness. Activities explore community settings, the role of different people and workers in the community, as well as the celebration of major holidays. - The activities in Chapter Five will help children develop basic environmental awareness while acquiring an appreciation for living creatures. The authors devote an entire chapter to assessment, including sample rubrics and a teacher self-assessment form. They also present ideas to motivate children to assess their own involvement and enjoyment of the activity.
