Development of Leadership Capacities in Children.
Hillman, Susan; Smith, Jerry
Research indicates that leadership among children is a function of the group and that situations can be manipulated to encourage leadership. Teachers can intervene to influence the development of positive forms of leadership in all children. Three areas for teacher involvement are apparent. Teachers can (1) become more sensitive to their own attitudes and values regarding the display of leadership behavior in children; (2) create an environment which encourages independent judgement and self-direction in the classroom for at least some part of the day; (3) provide opportunities for students to acquire and enhance skills that are related to leadership.
