 About the Book 

Featuring lively essays from rural elementary and secondary teachers, this volume describes the theory and practice of place-conscious education - using ones local place to build real, lasting connections to learning. The teachers describe the development and implementation of rich classroom writing programs that link learners with their rural communities and can serve as models for both public engagement and pedagogy.
