Leadership

Leadership is not about status or titles. Leadership is about serving other people, not ourselves. Students in this course will investigate leadership through history and literature, and apply a value lens to learn about the characteristics of leadership. Students will explore different types of leadership by diving deeply into a case study of a leader of their choice. They will also learn and practice skills necessary to lead from a position of service to others. Group discussions as well as personal reflection will occur regularly. Students will also be asked to identify an area of our school in which to lead and engage with others as a leader over the course of the semester. (Semester, .50 credit)
