Roles of Leadership

Using a primary document from the journal of pioneer John Shaw, learners explore relations between the US government and Native Americans in Wisconsin during the early 1800s. Shaw recalls Tomah, Black Hawk, Keokuk, and other leaders. The reading leads to a class discussion of qualities and accomplishments that signify a good leader and a class game of Leader-O (like Bingo). After reading the article, groups participate in a memory game activity. Finally, the whole class compares the Native American leaders in Shaw's journal to contemporary leaders with regard to the ways that they demonstrate their leadership.

I teach gifted students, and need to enrich the basic curriculum to meet their unique needs. Lesson Planet helps me find tons of good plans and worksheets that help me go beyond the basics.
