The purpose of this blog is to share ideas, thoughts and feelings on the journey to provide 21st Century Learning through The Leader in Me. It is hoped that this blog will serve a central location to post ideas and stimulate thought and discussion.
After I read the Leader in Me, I decided to give my students some leadership roles that I had done in the past. One job is the bus leader. Each week, the child assigned leads the dismissal line. Using the clip board he calls off the names of the students who are to ride each bus. The student must use a clear, strong voice and must use eye contact to assure that each student has heard the direction and is going to the right place at the end of the day. This is an important job and students are proud that they can do it well.
