Teaching Students 21st Century Leadership and Life Skills
When Principal Muriel Summers asked parents and business leaders what they wanted in their schools, what she heard reinforced what most people believe—that our schools should not merely be focused on improving test scores, but should provide opportunities for students to develop their full potential. At Reese Road Leadership Magnet Academy we provide several avenues for excelling student achievement and leadership skills. Sign up for a Magnet Tour by clicking the link below.
- Problem Solving
- Initiative and Self-Direction
- Cross-Cultural Skills
Using Best-Practices and Universal Principles
The Leader in Me is aligned with best-in-class content and concepts practiced by global education thought leaders. It provides a logical, sequential and balanced process to help schools proactively design the culture that reflects their vision of the ideal school.
Content from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a key component of the overall The Leader in Me process. The 7 Habits is a synthesis of universal, timeless principles of personal and interpersonal effectiveness, such as responsibility, vision, integrity, teamwork, collaboration and renewal, which are secular in nature and common to all people and cultures.
Click here for a synopsis of the habits in kids’ language.
The Leader in Me is also aligned to many national and state academic standards. The process teaches students the skills needed for academic success in any setting. These skills include critical thinking, goal setting, listening and speaking, self-directed learning, presentation-making and the ability to work in groups.
And a New Mindset
Instead of seeing children through the lens of a normal distribution curve—some kids are naturally smart and others are not—The Leader in Me paradigm sees that every child is capable, every child is a leader. This paradigm changes everything.
Paradigm of Leadership: Everyone can be a leader. Paradigm of Potential: Everyone has Genius. Paradigm of Change: Change starts with me. Paradigm of Motivation: Educators empower students to lead their own learning. Paradigm of Education: Develop the whole person.”
Expanding Around the Globe
What would be possible if your school was filled with students who were responsible, who showed initiative, who were creative, who knew how to set goals and meet them, who got along with people of various backgrounds and cultures, and who could resolve conflicts and solve problems?
“We only get one chance to prepare children for a world none of us can possibly predict, what are we going to do with that one chance?”
—Principal Muriel Summers, A.B. Combs Elementary
