Leadership skills are nebulous, hard-to-define, and critical for students’ futures. Yet, many schools and districts still have minimal programs—typically a student council—and tend to concentrate on the oldest grades. In her edWebinar, “How to Fill the World with Leaders: Creating School Cultures Where Student Leadership Thrives,” Mariam G. MacGregor, M.S., Leadership Consultant, not only explained how to integrate leadership lessons in preschool, but she also advocated for administrators to make a conscious effort to develop citizen leaders.
This edWebinar will help you evaluate the current state of leadership development efforts in your school as you strive to prepare students for lifelong leadership regardless of career path.
Creative experiences that challenge students to observe, articulate, reimagine, and take risks help build their confidence and leadership capacity. Art can be used to develop new approaches to student leadership, while being fun for students. In “Art-Infused Student Leadership Projects,” panelists discussed how to develop leadership qualities in students through art activities.
