Before I die...

Before I Die in
Beijing, China

Organized by Chad Buckwalter, TheBJReviewer and the Beijing Forestry University

TED talks are an amazing tool to use in the classroom. After listening to Candy Chang's TED talk, my students and I were inspired to bring a wall to Beijing, China. The Beijing Forestry University quickly hopped onboard and put together supplies for our wall. Our wall is not a traditional wall however was still filled within 24 hours. We currently have 2 walls/boards on campus and rotate the topics. Our goal is to engage the university community by giving them a means to practice their English.

This wall was born in November, 2012.
