Abstract:

Australia's Murray-Darling Basin is at once a vast system and a collection of unique and disparate localities. In these localities - by rivers, rocks, reserves and gardens - young learners can be found who are able to interpret signs of life, and threats to that life. Supported by committed and risk-tolerant teachers, these learners have found ways to respond with informed action and with multiple forms of literate practice. This book records the experiences and outcomes of place-based inquiry. Here, in their own places, basin teachers and their partner researchers map out what an 'eco-ethical' approach might mean to learning, and to communicating understanding, in a networked world.
