Sequim, like many other small towns, is always looking for ways to get the townfolk downtown and in to the shops. On the First Friday of each month, an “art walk” is held through out the downtown area with different venues open to the public.
One of the many hats I wear is teaching English as a Second Language class for the local college. This turned out to be the perfect field trip. Some of the standards for ESL are: the ability to read directions, listen to and comprehend directions, and give oral directions. We downloaded the map and away we went! Students had to give and follow directions to the different venues using the map. (Thumbnail One) Once there, they had to engage someone in conversation and find something of note to write about later. The main photo is of two students viewing the art at theWildlight Gallery.
We started off at The Buzz (Thumbnail Two) and then fanned out in small groups all over town.
I’ll be sharing more of our adventures in the next few days.
