I used this book to teach a once-a-week "Leadership Skills" class for a semester to 7th and 8th graders. I like the activities that go with the lesson and the handouts. They give a good variety, they are fun and they are, for the most part very helpful in giving the kids a tangible example. I would recommend this book - although I did not follow it exactly. I omitted a few chapters right in the very beginning. I like the assignments they give in the back and the exams. I did not use them exactly - but they were a great starting point for me. Very helpful.
This year was my first year using this curriculum and I plan on using it again next year.

I used this book at a Christian high school to teach leadership. Generally, all the material was appropriate to this setting, however, there were a few times I decided to skip some sections during a class session as I personally didn't care to explore certain discussion topics mentioned in the text.

Everything in the text is well-laid-out and most times not much preparation time is required--especially if your classroom is well-equipped with basic office and school materials for the suggested activities. It would be wise, though, to read the activity section a couple days beforehand to round up any needed items to carry out the exercises. The kids liked these activities a great deal--though we didn't always have time to carry them out.

What surprised me the most is how much the students liked the book and the reflection questions it contained. I personally found the questions to be "hit-and-miss" in that sometimes they were profound, but other times they were just lame--however, for the high school students, they by-and-large seemed "just right". It's a good curriculum, particularly if you are already busy with other responsibilities and want something solid that's "ready-to-use" in the classroom.

I have used Building Everyday Leadership for over three years. The concise curriculum, hands-on activities, clear discussion points work wonderfully in my extremely diverse classroom. With all high school grades represented, the teacher's guide and student companion book are accessible to all students while still maintaining high levels of critical thinking. Of course, one can easily modify the units/chapters to fit any time frame. Whether you have only one week, a nine-week quarter, semester or year long course, Building Everyday Leadership has something for everyone. Lastly, this is an excellent curriculum for at-risk youth.

I am a high school teacher, and I purchased this book as a way to help supplement the leadership curriculum. I wanted to add some fun activities and 'spice' to the traditional curriculum. The students didn't really like this book, since the activities were extremely low-level and not very engaging. To be honest, I found the activities to be very cheesy and the scenarios somewhat contrived. I got all the way up to Chapter 5 with my students ("Leaders and Followers"), but then decided to throw in the towel with this book. I even purchased the activity book that was supposed to go along with this book, but I had similar results. I definitely don't recommend using this book with high school students. I think this book would work better with middle school students.

I got this hoping to base a student leadership skills group on the content. It turns out that it's a book for students, which should be accompanied by a leader's book, etc.

There are some great ideas in this book, but don't expect to get away with purchasing just this book. It takes some time to translate the material into small group meetings, but it is doable if you want to make it work.
