Adam Braun's book The Promise of a Pencil provides a wealth of material for teachers to use to promote leadership. Each chapter holds valuable lessons for the reader. Through his mantras, he offers a pathway for defining one's passion and becoming a positive influence for change in the world.
This curriculum unit was developed to be flexible in nature. The book can be read in its entirety with coordinating tasks for each chapter. The lessons can also stand alone, allowing teachers to select individual sections to teach. This leadership curriculum parallels Adam Braun's mantras, providing reflective activities for students to identify leadership qualities and hone their own. Most activities contain a short prompt and a visual organizer for students to complete. Each assignment can be completed independently or collaboratively in either small or large group formats.
