In pursuit of cultural competency, this seminar introduces teachers of German to Waldsee’s content-based, immersion approach to language learning and teaching. Time is scheduled for seminar participants to observe Waldsee staff convey alternative energy content through hands-on activities with high school participants on-site. Teachers will also partner with Waldsee staff and practice innovative teaching methods while co-teaching environmental activities applicable to classroom settings.
