This lesson explores environmental and health issues related to agricultural pollution in the Caribbean. Students examine the use of chlordecone, a pesticide dumped for decades despite its known health risks. They then learn about creole gardens, a traditional practice revived as an ecofriendly response to the crisis. Cultural elements (music, creole language) are weaved through the multimodal material presented (readings, videos). The targeted proficiency level is IH/AL (ACTFL) or B1/B2 (CEFR), for an audience or late teens or adults. All modes of communication are practiced.
