Definition essay about leadership. What makes a good leader? What are the traits of an effective leader? Students are to define these things in their own words, and give detailed examples of leadership based on these definitions. These examples can be from their lives, from history, or from fiction.
I have always assigned this in concert with a movie that deals greatly with leadership. Coach Carter, Braveheart, Gandhi, Apollo 13, Remember the Titans, and Dead Poets Society are just a few examples of movies you could pair with this project.
