Learning Leadership: A Curriculum Guide for a New Generation, Grades K-12.
Kretman, Kathy Postel, Ed.
Schools are the natural laboratories for examining and fostering strong leadership, followership, group problem solving, and citizenship. Today most leadership scholars see leadership as a process of a functional role in a group, which may be taken up later by another individual depending on the needs and tasks of the group. This curriculum guide is the result of a model partnership between a university and a high school in developing the beginnings of a school for citizenship and leadership. The guide begins with a foreword by James MacGregor Burns, a preface by the editor, and an introduction, "Why Teach Leadership?" by Gill Robinson Hickman. It is then divided into three sections: (1) "Getting Started--John F. Kennedy High School: A Case Study" (Juana Bordas with Lisa Levin Itte); (2) "Foundations of Leadership--A Model High School Leadership Course" (Jeff Schultz); and (3) "Leadership Learning across the Grades and Disciplines--Sample Lessons and Activities for Grades K-12" (Carol Starr). An afterword by Donald N. Bigelow and a list of suggested readings and resources conclude the guide. Attached are four appendixes: "Predicting High School Student Leadership" (Benjamin Schneider; Michelle C. Paul; Susan Schoenberger); a list of 1995 CivicQuest Teachers' Institute participants; contributors; and acknowledgments. (Contains 14 references.) (BT)
