ABORIGINAL LEADERSHIP 12
The Aboriginal Leadership Course has been designed to give students a practical experience with respect leadership and therefore will take them into field studies of work placements. For students at Mission Secondary their work placement has been at Mission Central Elementary. In addition, this course will also require students to do academic work; within their scope of academic work they will conduct research on both historical and contemporary Aboriginal Leaders. They will also be given “in class assignments” designed to invite students to critically analyze what being a leader means. Therefore in term one, as in term two, the learning outcomes is a synthesis of both the practical experience and the theoretical understanding of leadership. It is hoped that this will encourage students to act as leaders within our school community, their home communities and in their day to day living as Canadian citizens. This is a
