Writing is an important part of the GED preparation program at CAMBA.
Students easily reflect on their lives, but sometimes have a harder time
organizing those thoughts on paper. Our trip to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden
served as a shared experience which we could discuss and write about.
However, the trip was about much more than writing: it was also about
exploring a quiet, beautiful corner of Brooklyn that is too often overlooked.
While many students knew about the garden, many did not know that access is FREE
all winter, as well as at many other times. Students engaged with each other
comparing their likes and knowledge of plants from different parts of the world,
and just had fun seeing as much of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden as we could in
just a few hours!
