- Israel, Andrei L. “Putting Geography Education into Place: What Geography Educators Can Learn from Place-Based Education, and Vice Versa.” Journal of Geography 111, no. 2 (2012): 76–81.
This article details the theory and practice behind place-based education as well as the current state of geography field-work. The author argues that both geography and place-based education can benefit from incorporating ideas from each respective field into a more well-informed practice. Geographers can incorporate place-based pedagogies such as social justice, civic engagement, and environmental stewardship into their field work to have a more connected, holistic idea of “place,” while place-based educators can include some of the spatial and scalar characteristics of geography to obtain a more quantitative approach to their studies.

This article explores the changes within our sense of place as globalization increases the mobility of our ideas and commodities. Massey discusses the importance of establishing a rooted sense of place before expanding out, but at the same time she argues that places are actually networks of social relations. It helped us understand the need to incorporate the global and the local into “glocal.”
