Course Description

Teacher in Charge: S. Coats

Sustainable Projects 301
This course is designed for students who are passionate about the communities they operate in and want to make a difference. It is centred on students taking action to increase the cultural, environmental, social and/or economic sustainability of our community. 

Students will each develop and lead a project, and will therefore need to decide on, plan, carry out and reflect on an initiative. A significant element of the work will take place outside lessons. 

There is no set content for this course as it will be guided by student interest. Students will give an oral presentation as a part of their sustainability project, and this will be assessed against the Level 3 English standard. Students may also decide to incorporate other English standards as seems relevant to them, including writing, creating a visual text, and so on. There is also the option to incorporate unit standards. 

The purpose of this course is not to accumulate English credits, nor is it to gain University Entrance; it is to make our community more sustainable, and take responsibility for doing so.
