Opportunities for Genuine Student Leadership

Students need real leadership opportunities - not just running a note to the office or other tasks that may be called "leadership" but really aren't. Adam Welcome, co-author of Empower our Girls: Opening the Door for Girls to Achieve More


After listening to today’s show, I think you will take one of two challenges:

1 - Give students a genuine way to lead in your classroom. 

2 - Have a conversation with a colleague about student leadership and how your school is nurturing it and what you can do to improve student leadership opportunities.
