RequiredText:Teen Leadership: Developing Leaders for theFuture
TutorialTimes:AFTER SCHOOL Mon & Wed, or byappointment
Teen Leadership is a course in which students develop leadership, professional, and business skills. Students will learn to establish healthy relationships, understand the concept of personal responsibility, teamwork, organization of projects, and self-awareness. Students perform student council projects involving health, safety, energy, environment, school pride, and communityservice.
This class will revolve almost totally around you, the student. You will be learning from your peers, the people around you as well as your teacher facilitator. Various methods such as oral presentations, group work, discussions, critical thinking, written reports, and projects will be submitted in this class. You will be leading as well as teaching in class. My job is to facilitate and steer you in the rightdirection.
This course is divided into three main categories. First, we will take a look at ourselves; self- concept, emotional intelligence, public speaking, and standards & principles. Next, we will focus on relationships with others; peer pressure, family and personal relationships. We will finish up the course with a look at taking responsibility for our actions, the consequences our choices have, and how to turn ourselves intoleaders.
