About the Class
Leadership is one of the few (if any) classes where you, the student sets the goals for the class. Your first assignment will be to create a Mission Statement.
Class Projects: Scheduled class projects include Homecoming and Winterfest (and all that they entail), the SCOTY competiton, and a Spring Drive-In Movie. in addition, your entire class will be required to completely plan, run, and reflect upon one addional whole-class project. Other projects may be added.
Small Group Projects:
In addition to Class Projects, you will be expected to complete a small group project during the trimester. A small group project will use the skills of at least 3 people but no more than 6. You will come up with your own project ideas that need to be approved by the instructor and then by the student council class.
As a class we will have "In Class Work". This work will focus on group discussions and activities for team building and team learning experiences. We will also address many leadership qualities individually and as a group such as charachter, charisma, communication, commitment, competence, courage, discernment, mental focus, generosity, iniative, listening, passion, positive attitude, servanthood, and problem solving. High quality work is expected. Half effort or average work will not be tolerated.
