When your school purchases a Cultural Celebration Unit, the person who is in charge of payment will receive a special link to send to all teachers in the school. Via this link, they will all have the chance to log in and get their individual passwords.
Once inside the module, all the lessons are organized by subject and then by grade level. All the lessons and materials are available to download directly from the module. Any questions can also be posted in the module and our team will respond inside the module.
Are you a non-profit 501 (c) (3)?
Highland Echoes is a non-profit AND they are set up to support schools who can not afford the programs. We are accepting requests from schools who would like to be on the waiting list. If you would like to be on that list or set up a donation fund in order to raise money to obtain one of our teaching modules please contact: email@example.com
Jennifer Licko's 'A Celtic Classroom' program is not a non-profit. If you are using school funds to buy the program, you can buy directly from A Celtic Classroom.
Can we buy the lessons a la carte instead of the entire unit?
We have some (not all) of our lessons available a la cart style in the Lessons Shop (along with some great freebies). However, you will not get the automatic lifetime updates because you will only get the downloadable package. You will not have a password to get inside the module to receive the full team & teaching support, updates, bonuses and extra resources.
However, you do have the option of buying the Music only unit or general classroom unit only. These purchases do give you full access to lifetime updates (the release of all new lessons and resources), team support and bonuses.
Why should my school pay $1497 to get the entire unit, when I can just buy a few lessons to use in my class at a much more affordable price?
Great question! This comes down to our mission of trying to reach as many students as possible with diverse culture and traditions. All of the lessons are not available for sale individually. In fact, some of our meatiest lessons with the most value is only available when you purchase the full unit. We want to get the entire school on board with implementing the unit year after year. One lesson about Scotland or Ireland, doesn't have the same impact as an entire week of lessons in every class - and every year! The entire unit is licensed for every teacher in your school. The individual lessons are licensed for one teacher.
The individual lessons also do not includes updates, so once you buy the lesson, you are not eligible for any of the extra content we are always putting out!
What will the updates include?
Remember, that you will have lifetime access with the full units, so improvements based on your feedback will be an important part of the program. We will also add new lessons for each subject from time to time. Currently the program does not include our full line of video tutorials. Once those roll out, they will automatically appear inside the module.
Who created the lesson plans and have they been used in schools yet?
A team of certified and experienced teachers worked with our content creator who has a background in Scottish history, Scottish Traditions and culture. The plans were created to accommodate curriculum needs and to ensure ease of use for most teachers. Lessons have been tested in many schools by our lesson writers and by teachers who have no background experience with Scottish Culture. We are continually testing and making changes to ensure a quality experience for the students and teachers.
How much is 'Scotland in the Classroom' lifetime access for the entire elementary school?
To license the lifetime use of 'Scotland in the Classroom' the one time cost is $1497.
The Music unit is $297 and the General unit is $447.
Can I use grant money to purchase the program for my school?
Of course! If you need any extra information, please contact us and we are happy to help! firstname.lastname@example.org
If I move to another school, can I use the lessons with the students at my new school?
Great question! Our mission is to promote the Scottish culture and traditions. In line with our mission, we want you to continue teaching this material! We have a step by step process for moving teachers to obtain a license for their new school and it is very situation based.

Which grades are you serving?
The lessons are made such that each grade will get at least one lesson per subject (music, art, PE and general) every year. It is a cycle program in order to reach all children in multiple disciplines throughout their elementary education. However, the lessons are also made to stand on their own and additional resources are provided for expansion if desired.
Do you have any resources for Ireland?
Yes. We are currently working on our 'Ireland in the Class' program which will be the same format and pricing as 'Scotland in the Class'.
Are these lessons copyrighted?
The content inside of the unit is copyrighted and we license the program for your school. The lessons can not be shared with other teachers outside of your school or it is punishable by law. Please read our terms and conditions.
