Make the Most of Student Leadership Guides’ Video Tutorial

Student Leadership Guides are essential leadership lessons that help students learn and apply the 7 Habits and other 21st-century skills. In this video tutorial with Judy Yauch, you will be introduced to the new and improved guides that offer a fantastic opportunity to join students in learning, teaching, and applying the leadership principles found in this K–6 Leadership Series!

Student Leadership Guides are “By Teachers, For Teachers”

Thirty-eight lessons are covered in each level, featuring:

  • An emphasis on leadership skills such as decision making, problem solving, public speaking, critical thinking, creative thinking, and more.
  • A direct teaching of key concepts associated with the 7 Habits.
  • A gradual release of content, moving from “I do it,” to “We do it,” to “You do it.”
  • Links to videos, handouts, and supplemental stories at The Leader in Me Online.

Each lesson in the student leadership guides has been designed by teachers, for teachers. Group discussions, individual reflections, kinesthetic activities, online-learning tools, differentiation options, formative assessments, and home connections are combined to provide an engaging learning experience for your students while honoring a variety of learning styles. Central to the instructional design is the engagement and interaction of students.
