A Field Class is a one-period farm or classroom program for teachers and students at David Thompson and VanTech Secondary Schools. Each Field Class supports integration with the new curriculum and is geared towards a Big Idea and curricular competency for one course.
All courses use an experiential learning model of experience, reflection, and application, allowing students to use their farm experience as a tool for reaching the content and curricular competencies. Classes will be facilitated by a Fresh Roots expert. An updated list of field classes is coming soon.
Field Classes cover specific learning outcomes for a variety of subjects for grades 8-12. Science, Social Studies, Culinary Arts and Language teachers will all find a field class that applies to one or more of their courses. Have an idea for a field class that would enhance classroom learning? The Fresh Roots Education team would be happy to create a farm-based experience to make it happen!
