The Friday Institute is excited to share that their Students LEAD (Learn, Explore, & Advocate Differently) Course has officially launched. Students LEAD is a free, online experience for students in middle and high school and those transitioning to college.
The course helps equip students with knowledge about their own learning, provides strategies students can use in and outside of school, and empowers students to partner with their allies and advocate for themselves. The course addresses attention, time management and organization, expressing ideas, and memory, and students create an Advocacy Plan that they can share with the adults/allies in their lives. It also includes Teacher Guides for lessons and strategies to use in the classroom while students are engaged with the course. Over the past several months, we have gathered feedback and suggestions from more than 250 pilot participants and revised the course based upon the input from students.
