And within that garden world, there is a world-within-a-world, which is the world of international schools. This is the analogy that will ground our thinking in this partinitial session. Get it…”ground”? Beware, I will be bringing you back to this theme through idioms, and word plays throughout the module…think of it as “functional entertainment”.
