Leadership

Course Description
This course is designed to promote leadership skills and to provide a time for students to engage in school service projects. The major objectives are for students to develop communication skills, improve their organizational skills, develop team-building strategies, and promote responsibility and sportsmanship in all school activities. The course is primarily hands-on but also includes supplementary readings, guest speakers, projects, and role-playing. To better meet students’ needs, students are provided the opportunity to select many of the class goals and projects as the year progresses. Most of the content used in the class is obtained from materials developed for the Virginia High School League Leadership conferences and from the book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey. Students are graded on a pass/fail basis. Participation is class discussion is extremely important, and points are assigned for various projects done weekly as well as monthly. Participation in the class provides students with an opportunity to be creative, serve their school and community, and grow as leaders.
