Leadership Training is a multidisciplinary course designed to help students develop communication, group process and facilitative leadership skills. Student leaders develop and apply techniques of leading, planning, organizing, conducting, and evaluating, including problem solving and critical thinking. Activities include: participating in and conducting effective meetings, setting individual and group goals, recognizing and producing quality products and performance, cooperative planning and learning, sharing responsibilities, taking positive action, and working with
people from diverse backgrounds while earning community service hours. Emphasis is on authentic learning with student participation and involvement with real school and student concerns as a means of understanding levels of organization, levels of authority, and communication and management techniques. Application of leadership is taught as a function that can be performed by any member of a group or shared by several
at one time. This course can be repeated for elective credit.
Prerequisite: Interview with the Grade Level or SBA advisor and teacher recommendation is required. Students must have a minimum GPA of 2.0 and a willingness to commit to being a positive student role model.
