Instruction is place-based education where classrooms are actually housed within local museums, courthouses, and other urban institutions. Place-based schools are interacting with institutional staff, community educators, and students from across the county. Students are provided with interactive lessons that allow them to move around the exhibits. Powerful relationships are established between school and community. This model also nurtures and empowers civil collaboration. School is not an island and plays an active role within a community. Teachers are one of many adults that interact with students such as support staff, counselors, therapists, and probation officers as well as urban farmers, architects, community designers. Examples are rebuilding the entire neighborhood model in the flooded areas of in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
