In this ESL lesson plan for adults and teens, students watch a trailer for a "Masterclass" on the "Gangster Gardener" - a man who started gardening on the streets of South Central Los Angeles. It includes discussion questions, conversation, and other activities about gardening. Students also learn some important vocabulary terms and phrases from the video. The grammar exercise features the usage of the adverbs "either" and "anyway". There are additional speaking tasks, as well as a quiz and review section with a bonus activity.
Ron Finley, the community activist and self-proclaimed “Gangster Gardener” from South Central L.A., shares his self-taught techniques for finding your inner green thumb and experiencing the power of growing your own food in his new MasterClass on gardening. Learn how to turn everyday items into planters, keep houseplants alive and thriving, and grow a healthy, sustainable bounty no matter where you live.
