Abstract: 

This 2-part video documentary illustrates the many benefits of using the Environment as an Integrating Context (EIC) in education, for the students and the teachers. EIC-based learning is not primarily focused on learning about the environment, it's about using a school's surroundings and community as a framework for students to construct their own learning.

Part 1: Introduces an elementary, middle and high school where teachers use EIC to improve motivation, learning and academic achievement.

Part 2: shows teaching teams using EIC to create innovative, interdisciplinary instruction to increase group and individual learning.

Produced in 1997
