In this activity, students take the best parts of American presidents of their choosing as exemplars of those leader traits. There is a standards-based grading rubric included where students can fill out where they think they are. There's space for the teacher to reflect/grade as well.
I have just edited this activity to include an optional brainstorm before the assignment. Instead of providing the traits, you could have students develop them.
Parts of this lesson included:
+ Brainstorm Assignment Sheet: "What makes a good leader?" (Optional)
+ Assignment Sheet with: Blank Table of Traits of a Leader, Requirements (Standards), Product Ideas (Short choice menu)
+ Assignment Sheet with: Table of Traits of a Leader, Requirements (Standards), Product Ideas (Short choice menu)
+ Standard-Based Rubric
