Greg and I had been brainstorming about ways to better engage students in authentic learning by identifying actual real-world problems for them to engage in solving. We realized that in order to mulch the garden, not only would students need specific content in both Algebra and English, but they would also be practicing our district’s transferable skills. We designed this unit to be interdisciplinary, student-centered, and to use the community as our classroom.
