Written for teens of all ages and groups of any kinds, this workbook is the instructor's guide for a 21-session curriculum on fostering leadership. Written by a former school counselor and coordinator of leadership programs, the guide is flexible enough for teachers to choose all or some of the lessons, according to the needs of the audience. The book begins by defining leadership, its importance as a skill, and its benefits to all teens, not just a select few. The 45-minute sessions for students from ages 11 to 18 require that each have a student copy of the book. Each session lists goals, materials, needed steps for getting ready, how to begin, step by step guidance through each teaching activity, discussion questions, items for written reflections, and ideas for putting learning into action. A wide variety of strategies are employed that should appeal to a variety of learning styles. Lessons deal with subjects such as what makes a good leader, doing the right thing, turning conflict into cooperation and thinking creatively. There are plenty of resources and additional readings provided, as well as forms that can be reproduced. It is an excellent resource for working with any aged teen and user friendly for busy adult leaders.
