Leadership Training for High School Students.
Casper, Paul
A proposal is offered that a course in leadership training be established in the secondary school curriculum. A paradigm is presented for curriculum decision making based on the questions of what shall be taught and how, what are the characteristics of a leader, and what are the attitudes and needs of followers. The proposed course is divided into three quarters. The first quarter is a study of human relations and is considered a practical course in social psychology. Following this, concentration in placed on communication skills both verbal and written. The final quarter is a "Leadership Laboratory" and is designed to exercise leadership techniques in small job management situations. The scope and suggested content of the three blocks of instruction are appended. (JD)
