TO CREATE LIFELONG RESPECT


  • LESSONS, Built into the teaching module are lessons for your entire school - grades k-5. 

  • CURRICULUM, The lesson creators are certified teachers who understand the compliance to common core, and The National Standards for the Arts.

  • TUTORIALS, The lessons include step by step scripts and tutorials saving you time. These plans even work great for subs because everything needed is online inside the module!  

  • TEAM SUPPORT, Your school will have full support from our team! Questions? Just ask! Doubts? Visit the closed Facebook support group we created just for you when we go live every week to help!  Comment inside the module below the activity and our team responds.  We are here to help you implement this program as much as you need.

  • BONUSES, For sure you didn't think we would stop at the lessons! ummmm, no! We have bonuses!  Our bonus bundle inside the program is OH SO GOOD!!!!  

  • RESOURCESInside the module we have extra resources and activity packs for you to use for expansion opportunities.  We are also providing you with direct links to regional Scottish organizations.  

  • Highland Echoes, The Show. We work with a full music and dance production touring at various times throughout the year. We will always let you know when the show is touring in your area and offer you special ticket prices when possible.  There is also the option of your students performing a dance at the show! (yes, this dance is taught right inside of your Scotland in the Classroom module). 

The history and culture of Scotland provides teaching opportunities through the traditions of music, dance, PE, arts and language.  Scottish immigration is a part of American history and also played a huge role in American folk music and dance - teaching WHO WE ARE and HOW WE HAVE EXPRESSED OURSELVES throughout time.
