With a growing list of over 500 schools that have requested Scottish Culture in their learning environment, we want to help fulfill their desire to share the culture with our future generation.
It’s imperative to focus on a school-aged, consistent and sustainable long term program- to create the biggest impact.
This will assure the long term success and sustainability of Scottish heritage in the US. At the end of the day, HE is planting if not the first seed, a very early seed in the single largest system in the world. The schools.
With this funding we are able to help implement two Schools programs:
1. The Scotland in the Class Project is one of the core ways in which Highland Echoes seeks to promote Scottish culture and heritage. Scotland in the Class is a unique unit that provides teachers with complete lesson plans and activities, that are common core aligned and that engage students in learning about Scottish culture, heritage, and traditions. Students will be amazed to learn how much of the history of the United States and of their region has been influenced by Scottish heritage.
2. Scottish Cultural Arts Assemblies. Highland Echoes cast members engage in an assembly of interactive Scottish Cultural arts performances with elementary-aged students.
HE is planting if not the first seed, a very early seed in the single largest system in the world. The schools.
And we are doing so from an educational, and fun point of view.
