Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
– John F. Kennedy
- Create leadership courses
- Ensure all student groups at the school are represented
- As part of these courses, set up structures for students to take on meaningful leadership roles, and empower their voices
- Engage students in decision-making processes that impact the students, families, and staff
While it doesn’t necessarily provide ideas specifically for student courses, the provided Inflexion Blog post (and the ideas and practices of Carmen Gelman, Director of Professional Learning at COSA) is a great place to start for getting inspired about how you and your school can develop courses that elevate students into active leadership roles.
