Effective leaders know how to get people on board. They are able to share their vision with anyone at any time.
Throughout the activities of Lesson 7, students place their literacy skills and knowledge of language structure into practice and develop their skills with real-world application.
Students reflect on the following questions throughout Lesson 7 (10 track Lesson 7 = 6-track Lesson 4):
1) Is the goal easy to understand and can people relate?
2) Does the goal generate excitement?
3) Does the goal make people say, “I want to help make it happen”?
Students at Northglenn HS in Colorado entered the Challenge last April. Their team, the “Almighty Chefs” stated:
“This lesson gave us a good way to communicate our vision to our teachers and deans so they could aid us in making our vision possible.”
Allowing students to practice 21st-century skills such as communication and problem solving is the objective of this Lead4Change lesson. Focusing on quality versus quantity when choosing a community or school project is a tough concept to teach students.
Advisory Board Member and teacher from Chicago’s High School for Agricultural Sciences, Ms. JaMonica Marion states:
“Although we did not have a number of toys we were aiming for, our heartfelt goal was to see to the joy of children in desperate need for joy.”
Ms. Marion understands their big goal was not met, however, conveys this deeper message to her students and transfers it to the next lesson of ‘overcoming obstacles’. These real-world moments are what the Lead4Change program wants students to practice and learn from.
We encourage you to watch the Lesson 7 video by David Novak, assist your students to create their elevator speech and analyze qualities which constitute a good advertisement. Incorporate technology where appropriate.
