Not only have I received literature through my new class on what David Sobel has to say, but even Lisa has forwarded me this link: CLICK HERE!
Sobel’s topic that caught my interest is Place Based Education. This relates nicely to my mission to make it more possible to get kids outside.

I am finding articles and videos all over the place. I have much to research… like this:[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODDfoR2v7g0&w=420&h=315]
