We want to encourage our young scholars to show leadership in their endeavors. A character-building activity prompts your scholars to design a new strategy or adapt a skill for a sport in your PE class. They are graded according to the rubric provided; half the points come from their self-assessment and the other half from the teacher assessment. The more responsibility you give your students, the more leadership they will show.
Learning about leadership, and different styles can be an important step toward understanding government and local organizations. By participating in a survey to evaluate leadership styles, involving 60 questions, learners get a better idea about what being a leader means.
Young scholars focus on the problem of African American leadership throughout American history. In groups, they research the life and works of Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois and how they worked to promote the need for African American leaders. They examine the reasons why Washington's ideas lost followers and DuBois gained followers. To end the instructional activity, they discuss if either man's ideas would be accepted today.
