Lessons From the Real World [electronic resource]: Social Issues and Student Involvement

Gliner, Robert
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
A follow up to Democracy Left Behind: NCLB and Civic Education (item 39484), this program looks at community-based learning in K-12 education. The film explores a wide variety of educational settings in which action-oriented lessons enable students to work outside the classroom, in their own communities. While taking nothing away from the importance of traditional academic subjects, the film promotes the idea that math, reading, and other areas are more effectively explored if students care about what they are learning-rather than being drilled with subject matter divorced from their real lives and the environments that often impact those lives.
