Next Monday March 6 is our Change Agent Exhibition!

Students, this is the interview sheet you will be using at the exhibition!

An email has gone out or will go out to all parents about this exhibition! We are also inviting the guests we have had in our classroom over the duration of this project!

Here is our invitation!


On March 6, in the middle block (12:00-12:45 approximately), we will be holding our Change Agent exhibition. This is an opportunity for students to share what they have done with each other and with the community at large.

You are welcome to attend this event!

The class will be divided in half, with one half 'presenting' and the other half interviewing/viewing. Each 'presenter' will have a booth, with a laptop, and will be able to show their accomplishments.

The Change Agent project started in September of this school year and lasted until March. Students were given this challenge: to choose an issue that they cared about and then take action on that issue.

This project was based in part on the UN Global Goals.

This project is similar in spirit to Genius Hour or Passion Projects, which other schools have implemented. This is the first time we have done this in our class.

We have had numerous guest speakers in our class in regards to this project:
  • Denise Cole and Glenn Stephenson from the SCDSB Equity and Inclusion Resource Team
  • Sandra Willems, Shanty Bay PS parent & a local graphic designer
  • Grade 8 Orillia artist/student, Ani, her mom and photographer Jeff Buchanon
  • Phil Hall, local Oro Medonte Councillor
  • Margaret Prophet from the Simcoe County Greenbelt Coalition
After March Break we will be seeking feedback from students, parents and the community as to their thoughts on the project and ways to improve it (a survey link will be on the class blog!).

For more information, please go to the Change Agent page on our class blog.

No need to RSVP, just drop in at around 12:00 pm!

Mrs. Johnson & Mrs. Czarnota
