Gardening in the World Language Classroom
Experiential education allows students to use the theories and skills gained in the classroom to solve real-world problems, while also giving them an opportunity to use the target language in a real-world setting. By associating language use with a real-world context, students see the utility of the target language. In this session, we’ll learn about a variety of practical ways of using gardening to serve as a springboard for using the target language. Weather permitting, we’ll visit the Kent Place School World Language Garden to see what’s growing – and maybe have a job to do!
