Effective student leadership practices provide opportunities for students to:
feel in control of their learning. This means significant input to rules and procedures, establishing learning goals and tasks, deciding how to work.
feel competent. This means investigating and responding to issues of survival and quality of life, solving real problems, creating real products.
feel connected with others. This means cooperative and collaborative learning, peer support, community linkages, mutual respect.
