Ceres Garden, Sebastopol
Literacy learning in the garden classroom, like in any classroom, is most successful when students engage in tasks that promote authentic language use. What does that look like, exactly? Evidence supports activities that provide opportunities to read, write, and talk in the ways actual gardeners do. - Carrie Strohl
Learn how to connect cooking and gardening instruction to the Common Core ELA or Math standards and the Next Generation science standards.
This workshop, taught by science educator Carrie Strohl, is designed to develop educators’ understanding of how common garden activities can be adapted to become robust lessons designed to meet the current curricular standards expected in schools. We will spend our day both in the classroom and in the garden as we explore hands on lessons and deepen our understanding of how best to link the garden and classroom studies.
