Reviews

"While field trip itineraries are included in the appendix, this book is not about how to take field trips. Rather, it is Vascellaro's richly detailed account of three teachers who prioritized the richest way of knowing (which included field trips) over the shortest route to learning. With today's educational climate measuring success in terms of how much productivity can be squeezed out of learners within the shortest amount of time, it was extremely gratifying to delve into these teachers' success stories. The 'field trip' was really that of the teachers' journey into the uncomfortable terrain outside the content of the textbook and security of the classroom. . . .The book offers motivation for both teachers and students to pursue a love of learning."
