Product Description
Challenge your Leadership students to rise to the responsibility of leading their peers in everything from nonverbal communication to team-building to active listening skills for the day and transfer some of the onus of lesson planning to them with this simple project.

What used to be “game day Friday” is now an authentic day of multi-faceted learning where your students are in charge!

************************************

Greatness is effectively sharing with others something about which you’re passionate.

No better way to learn about leadership than to do it! Turn one day a week into a student-planned and student-led leadership activity day with this no-brainer, no-planning for you project.

After leading your students through a sample lesson on nonverbal communication (warm-up activity, main activity challenge, and exit ticket debrief) provide students all the materials to lead their own.

Students, then, sign up for their “day” and identify a leadership skill of focus like problem-solving, group decision-making, communication, kindness- whatever they see as a need for the group!

You serve as their consultant as they utilize the real-world skills of brainstorming, preparing, facilitating, and reflecting on their lesson through which they lead their classmates.

Options for this on-going class component:
- Signing up individually, in pairs, or in small groups to lead the lesson
- Assigning one lesson per student a quarter, a semester, or a year

Included in this complete project kit:
- 1-sheet Sample Lesson handout and 1-sheet Sample Exit Tickets to provide a model
- 1-sheet Lesson Ideas handout to aid in students’ brainstorming
- 1-sheet step-by-step Activity Day Planning Sheet to guide their lesson development
- 1-sheet Reflection & Rubric sheet (CCSS-aligned and generic) to bring closure and next steps
- List of recommended books with many high-quality leadership warm-ups and more involved activities perfect for middle- through high-school age students

Tips from my Classroom:
During first semester, I lead Activity Days where we focus on certain leadership skills (like Public Speaking / Communication, Teamwork) whenever we have a spare day in our busy fall and winter schedule, but come second semester I hand it off to my students with this project!

Students by that point are familiar with Activity Day routines and options, they are comfortable now leading their classmates, and our schedule is much more open in the late winter and spring.

Students pick their day on the calendar, scheduling for one or two Activity Days a week over the couse of second semester. Then it's up to them to plan their day!

Students love to bring in the memorable lessons and activities they've experienced in their youth groups, leadership camps, and elsewhere, and also love being in charge of teaching a skill they see as a need in the group, in the school, or in life!

My students look forward to this every year and yours will too!
