Using Film to Teach Authentic Leadership
Scott, Meagan; Weeks, Penny Pennington
Journal of Leadership Education, v15 n1 p140-149 2016
Utilizing film as a teaching tool in a personal leadership development course helped undergraduate students synthesize authentic leadership concepts. "Iron Jawed Angels" facilitated the culminating lesson as students applied course concepts to an observed leader. Three objectives guided the final lesson: (a) critique Alice Paul's leadership as it relates to the components of the Discovering Leadership Framework described in "Discovering the Leader in You," (b) identify key film scenes, quotes, and characters, applying them to course concepts and Alice Paul, and (c) analyze Alice Paul's leadership as it relates to authentic leadership development. Four class meetings were designated for the final lesson. Students viewed the film on days one and two, and days three and four were spent identifying, critiquing, and analyzing Alice Paul's leadership.
