SLC: Student Leadership for Change
"Open Access” pilot project!
Sign up for our FREE version of the Student Leadership for Change Program.
What does this mean?
Inspired by the rising student voices demanding change NOW, and the vital urgency of this decade, Be The Change is keen to remove any barriers that may impede the SLC inquiry-based resources from empowering every student to engage in life-changing actions to combat the Climate Emergency, Species Extinction Crisis, and related Social Justice issues of today.
Foregoing the annual $100 licensing fee, the SLC Open Access pilot approach offers teachers free access to lesson plans, classroom activities, student Action Packs and a comprehensive Library of Links. Upon signing up teachers can create an account for their students.
BTCEA is a charitable organization whose work is supported by donations and grants. In the spirit of honouring equity access, teachers who have a budget for learning resources and value this offering are welcome to voluntarily make a tax-deductible donation to BTCEA. This support will ensure that these resources continue to be updated for all to share. A tax receipt will be issued.
What do I get for signing up?
SLC is comprised of six independent, interchangeable modules that focus on developing core values for a sustainable worldview and lifestyle.
Each module not only includes a lesson plan and classroom activities but up to eight student inquiry & project-based 'Action Packs' that explore specific sustainability topics, providing research links and experiential activities to develop students’ core competencies in critical and creative thinking, communication, inquiry, and personal and social responsibility. SLC can be a turn-key resource or a creative launching pad for deep classroom discussions and capstone projects.
Check out the SLC Climate Change package, Climate System Lesson Plan, the ‘Innovation’ Module for supporting Capstone Projects and the Green Careers Package.
How do I sign up?
Once you complete the form at the bottom of this page you will be directed to a survey that lets BTCEA know who is using the resources and what students they are offering it to. Upon completion of the survey, teachers instantly receive an email that gives them online access to our free version of SLC.
