Learning To Be a Leader.
Research on leadership in gifted education is reviewed, focusing on studies conducted with various age groups in education settings. Leadership research is examined through three general approaches: the trait approach, leadership styles, and the situational approach. A leadership training model for high-school students is presented, based on the Leadership Program of the United States Chamber of Commerce. It emphasizes formation of a cohesive group of gifted students. The group participates in training sessions on school district organizational structure and on leadership opportunities within the school district, and subsequently works together to produce a creative and valid solution to a school-related problem.
