"I am new at the school and worked with a group of students I have not worked with before. The students were incredibly engaged with the inquiry and the resources we used. The most important observation I made was the empowerment the students felt after finishing the projects. Because the students were required to take actions and because the actions were “doable” students felt like they were actually making a difference."
“The resources that came from Be the Change Earth Alliance and their Student Leadership for Change (SLC) program offered a wide variety of activities. Students became more aware of the school environment and took more initiative to take care of it (picking up garbage, recycling, taking better care of school resources like textbooks and PE equipment, etc).”
"Overall I believe the project was interesting and motivated many students to look at their own sustainability habits and decisions. It was also very helpful to have direct support from BTCEA via phone, e-mail or workshops.”
“My teaching practice has blossomed through the teaching of this course. I have seen pride and joy in my students and they are learning to deal with and work through failures and make connections to their food and the local community.”
