Mexico: Legacies of Leadership--Legends and Heroes. Curriculum Projects. Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminars Abroad Program, 2002 (Mexico).
Morgan, Peggy A.
No organization or country can rise above the dynamics and/or quality of its leaders. Whether they be negative or positive in vision, self promotional or other fulfilled, effective leaders are effective people regardless of the outcome they have in mind for those whom they lead or for those who choose to support them. Following an examination of leadership characteristics, as presented through literary works, articles on leadership, videos, public speakers, skits, and other in-class cooperative group activities, plus a historical examination of leadership in Mexico through applicable focus on the country's past and present leaders (political, educational, sociological, humanitarian, and artistic), this curriculum project seeks to nurture understanding and offer substantive predictability relevant to the success of Mexico's move toward democracy and economic sustainable development. Students research selected Mexican nationals to access data required to complete the attached lessons that are designed to analyze, then evaluate the imminence of Mexico's heroes, leaders, and legends, and their contribution to the country's prominence. The project poses 10 questions about ethical leadership; identifies standards; gives instructional objectives; lists eight references; notes materials needed; cites educational objectives; and suggests assignment activities.
