This project began by interviewing several business leaders across PA and found eight common leadership skill areas that these leaders felt students should learn in order to be sucessful leaders themselves throughout their lives. This page highlights those eight skill areas by providing a toolkit of resources for each of them. It is our hope that these toolkits can help supplement the lessons and additional resources housed in our database to really develop these skills in your students. Toolkits can be found on the right beneath each individual leadership skill area.
PowerPoint Presentation - These presentations will provide an introduction to what each skill area means, how it relates to leadership, and brief activities to get your students thinking about the skill.
Video - Each video was developed by youth, for youth, and provides a brief situational representation of the different skill areas.
Suggestions - These one-pagers offer generalizable suggestions and questions to help support the explicit learning of skill areas in every day lessons.
Vocabulary Matching - These worksheets each provide a set of vocabulary specific to that skill area in order to enhance the student's understanding.
Practice Activity - These activities are a more interactive way to directly practice utilizing each skill area.
Puzzle Activity - These activities are meant to provide a more engaging way for students to be exposed to the skill area vocabulary.
