It’s not easy being green

This is an amazing Ted Talk by Stephen Ritz a teacher in the South Bronx in New York City.  He has created a green revolution that has seen attendance in his classes go from 40- to 90% while teaching kids about plants and growing, giving back to people, building skills, building businesses, building relationships – WOW! This is learning at it’s best.

“Bring your body and your brain will follow”  is a key concept that Stephen uses to help him ensure that his “reach exceeds his grasp”.

Thanks to CRPS teacher Lesley Ried for sending me this link.
