Effective Leadership

With the shift to flipped classrooms and Project Based Learning, it is important that we instill effective leadership skills in all of our students. As we give students the opportunity to take control of their learning, it is vital that students master some of the strategies needed to be a strong leader, in and out of the classroom. This collection will aid in developing these skills while focusing on giving students the opportunity to regularly engage in these strategies with their peers.

    This is a fantastic lesson that will allow students to discuss the strong leadership skills of noteable leaders from the past and present. This will allow students to make a personal connection with the leader they chose and analyze the leadership skills they may have in common. This lesson is for grades 6-12 but can be modified for younger grades by simply choosing a leader that is relevant and significant to younger students.

    Virginia Public Schools has created a comprehensive guide for creating student leaders. This can be used to target specific skills your students need to work on as it provides a guide for what expectations and behaviors students should present in each grade.
