A CC Tour of the Netherlands

September 28th, 2018 · No Comments

Room 407 of ISB’s Cultural Center is home to one of the native Dutch classes taught on campus after school. Teacher Saskia Leeuwangh worked with students to turn a wall of the room into a mini-tour of the Netherlands, which shows where she and students are from plus sites of significance.

The use of simple visuals (such as a labeled map) to support language, is a strategy that works in homes as well as at school. Can you think of an expression you learned just by reading a bulletin board or items stuck to a refrigerator?
