Taking the Classroom Into the Community
A Guidebook



May 1996 | 80 pages | Corwin
The focus of this helpful book is on using the community as a classroom for students to gain `real-world' experience. Neal A Glasgow offers examples of activities that utilize community resources, provides clear instruction for recruiting and using community mentors, and addresses insurance and liability issues for students who are involved in learning activities away from school. He also describes the project portfolio that students will present as part of their final assessment.
