A Pedagogy of Place


This book is dedicated to all educators who wish to explore new ways of practice in order that they may enrich the lives of their students, their communities and their places.

The most profound satisfactions are to be found in living a life in accord with the natural world, exercising the human capacity for friendship and altruism, engaging in creative and purposeful activity, and experiencing an allegiance to one’s origins ... But it is insufficient to hear such a message; one has to experience it to know that things are so.

Michael King (1999, 240)
