Overview

Enriching, engaging, rigorous, meaningful—these are the learning opportunities that are interwoven in Celebrate Leadership: Lessons for Middle School Students. Meyer and Glock use the ideas of Howard Gardner as a guide in designing curriculum and assessments that will engage learners. Constructing learning experiences that are based on the multiple intelligences and the standards provides all students with the opportunity to be successful. When it comes to assessment of that learning, educators can use the same concept in designing authentic situations, which the authors call celebrations of learning. Celebrate Leadership has step-by-step procedures, planning sheets for teachers, and all the materials that students need. The teaching and learning culminate in a "Night of the Notables" celebration, with an audience that includes peers, parents, and community members. Meyer and Glock present a program that is easy for the instructor to implement and worthwhile, rewarding, and fun for students.

Editorial Reviews

Tom Hoerr
Every teacher should be fortunate enough to have Maggie Meyer and Jenna Glock as teammates and collaborators. Every principal should be lucky enough to have them on his/her faculty. Since that's not feasible, Celebrate Leadership offers the next best possibility.

In this rich book, Maggie and Jenna provide creativity and inspiration, but that's just the beginning. They take an idea that is all too rare in education—that learning should be a celebration—and they show, step-by-step, how it can happen. Multiple intelligences strategies are offered next to websites and rubrics. This book offers a wealth of ideas on goal setting, student assessment, and parent communication, all within the framework of leadership. Studying leadership in this constructivist fashion means that students will not just become knowledgeable about leaders; they will learn to understand leadership.
