I am considering the possibility of developing and teaching a leadership class for junior high school students. It would be an elective class and focus on building the leadership skills of students on our campus. For our school, it would be important to select a diverse group of students, with the demographics of the class reflecting those of our school. My vision is that this class will include students who some would consider “at-risk”, but who possess the potential to be leaders at our school and within our community.
Again, I am looking for some feedback from colleagues:
- Do you teach a leadership class, and if so, what do you cover?
- Are there school administrators teaching? What advice do you have about taking on a teaching role?
- Any suggestions for resources and materials would be GREATLY appreciated.
If you are on Twitter and don’t mind retweeting this article, it would be greatly appreciated – the more input the better. Thank you for your help!
