School-Connect has also been used effectively in student leadership classes. In many cases, the leadership students go through the lessons themselves and then teach select lessons to younger grade levels at the high school or middle school. School-Connect covers many of the topics essential to leadership skills – effective communication, negotiation, problem solving, perspective taking, responsible decision making – and encourages a student-driven classroom environment in which student voice is valued and nurtured.
School-Connect’s user-friendly lessons make it easy for leadership students to teach the lessons to others. If the leadership students demonstrate ability to reliably model and communicate the School-Connect skills, they can be a powerful tool in creating a supportive school climate and inspiring other students to adopt prosocial skills.
