Character Traits of Leaders - Research & Presentation Project

Character Traits of Leaders - Research & Presentation Project

In this lesson, students identify leadership traits by researching leaders throughout history. They are provided with links to resources to help them research three individuals of their choice from three different time periods in history. Lists of leaders from each time period are provided to help them choose. Then, they use that information along with graphics, pictures and backgrounds from the Internet to create a finished presentation that explains the qualities of each leader, the similarities and differences, and add their own opinions and insights to the project as they learn how to apply leadership skills in their own life. Two versions of instructions are provided to allow the lesson to be done individually or in small groups or partners. Projects can be presented in class or included on a website for viewing. This is an excellent creative project to add to a unit in a career class, leadership class or to support a history/social studies unit. The project was created for grades 7-8 but could easily be used with upper elementary or high school students. Files Included with this Lesson • Teacher & Student Notes and Resources • Student Project Instructions, Expectations, and Grading Rubric (for individual projects) • Student Project Instructions, Expectations, and Grading Rubric (for group products)

Black History Month, Citizenship and PSHE

Black History Month, Citizenship and PSHE

This is an ideal bundle for a colourful celebration of Black History Month for Key Stage 3 and 4 students. Silhouettes of a Treasured Heritage was recommended by the QCA as a critical text for the teaching of modern British multi-ethnic history. Triumph of the Water Lily has been described by Kirkus Review as a transporting text that vividly describes the culture of modern middle class Nigerians and the important rite of passage associated with African courtship and a traditional Nigerian wedding . Kadeja the Fulani Pearl Queen, is a haunting tale about an African princess who was captured by slave raiders as she travelled through the African rainforest to be reunited with her betrothed, the heir of the Ashanti throne.
