Middle Level Leadership Handbook. National Leadership Camp Curriculum--Student Guide.
Jensen, Jacquie; And Others
Activities and exercises to enhance student leadership are included in this curriculum guide for middle-level student leaders and their advisors. Because students in intermediate grades are not "little high school students," this separate leadership curriculum guide for middle-level student leaders was developed. Although the achieved skills are the same, the instructional methods and materials differ. Eleven chapters contain worksheets, information summaries, figures, sample planning forms, and personal profile questionnaires in the following areas: leadership; meeting skills; goal setting; organization; self-esteem; public relations; communications; problem solving and decision making; team building; activities; and evaluation. For example, the section on communication offers a checklist of good and bad listening habits, 10 guidelines for effective communication, a personal assessment of conflict-handling behavior, tips for giving a great speech, a description of one- and two-way communication, and strategies for dealing with critical remarks.
