Politics and Leadership

High schoolers research a historic leader and analyze how a philosopher's writings influenced the ruler in an essay. In this philosophy of government lesson plan, students view a video and participate in a class discussion on how great thinkers influence great leaders. Pairs research the influence of a philosopher on a leader by researching on the Internet. High schoolers write a 500-700 word essay based on their findings.

I am in my last year of graduate school, and having to do observation, and student teaching has been great. Lesson Planet was one of the sites mentioned one day, since then I've gain so many new creative ideas through the lessons. Thank you Lesson Planet
