Section 2 Learn Like a Pirate: Six elements that promote student leadership in your classroom:

3 Peer Collaboration-To have students leading each other and following one another's lead, collaboration skills must be honed 37

4 Improvement Focus vs. Grade Focus-Focusing on constant improvement, rather than summative feedback, helps students enjoy the learning process and take risks without the fear of failure 79

5 Responsibility-When students know they are expected to take ownership of their education and are encouraged to show initiative in the classroom, they develop responsibility and leadership skills 105

6 Active Learning-For students to avoid distractions and off-task behavior, they need to be learning actively and moving around the room 143

7 Twenty-First Century Skills-When feedback focuses on twenty-first century skills rather than simply the lessons content, students gain a deeper understanding of the material and are able to transfer knowledge to future experiences 177

8 Empowerment-Students learn to lead the class, help their peers, own their education, and maximize their time on task, when you empower them to make decisions on their own 213
