- Ask students, “What are your thoughts after watching the video?”
- Ask students, “How does the video relate to what we have been learning in class about leadership?”
- What stood out to you?
- Who in this video showed selflessness? Why?
- How did the other team show character?
- How would you describe Kaylee in one word? Why?
- Ask students to take 1 minute and individually write down some of the leadership principles or lessons they have learned so far this year.
- Have them turn and share with a neighbor and write down any of the lessons their neighbor has that they would like to include in their brainstorm.
- Now take 2-3 minutes and have students share out with the entire class the leadership principles they have learned.
- Tell students we will be doing “leadership show and tell.” Let them know they will now spend about 15 minutes looking for a video clip that demonstrates one of the leadership principles they have learned about this year.
- Depending on the class, you can have them working with a partner to try and find one video between the two of them, or you can have them work individually.
- Encourage them to search in Youtube, TeacherTube, or Ted Talks for key principles they wrote down during the brainstorming session.
- After 15 minutes check in to see if they need more time.
- As students are researching trying to find a video, walk around and help students if they seem to be stuck. Encourage them to search for words like “kindness,” “forgiveness,” “lessons in…,” etc..
- After 15 minutes, ask the class for a show of hands of anyone who has one video that represents a leadership lesson.
- If less than ¾ of the hands go up, have them show on their fingers how many more minutes they need.
- Next tell the students they need to write a few sentences summarizing what the video is about, who are the main people in the video, what is the main idea.
- Then have them write what leadership principle it best demonstrates and how it demonstrates that principle.
- Tell students they will now share their video clips with the class in a show and tell style.
- Have them come up and find their video clip.
- Have student show the entire video.
- Then have students share out what leadership principle the video displayed and how.
- As the teacher, you can ask the rest of the class anything else they saw from the video that may demonstrate other leadership principles they have learned.
- Have as many students come up as time allows to share their videos.
