Moscrop Secondary offers a vast array of Leadership courses with a variety of focuses.
Leadership (Grade 9/10)
This course focuses on group process, communication and organizational skills, and decision-making. Classroom activities and projects, promote global thinking, positive personal interaction and makng a difference in the world today – at all levels. Helping students become responsible, positive citizens is the major goal of the class. The class does numerous cooperative team building activities, which also includes the book Seven Habits of Successful Teens. Students in the program also work during lunch-time planning and putting on their events. Overall, this class is about learning “how to get things done”.
English Leadership 10
Leadership 10 will allow you to use your collective strengths and energies towards making your school a more vibrant place. During this year you will learn a lot about yourself, your classmates, and create lasting memories. You will need to be prepared to give to the school because you want to, not because you have to.
• Involvement in two major projects, two term projects, and service hours.
• Small written assignments, reflections, or homework sheets.
• Be pro-active in your actions, don’t sit and wait for someone to tell you what to do!
The curriculum is based upon provincial requirements, but is enriched, providing a great deal of formal and informal debate as well as public speaking/presentations. Focus is on the development of strong communication skills, integrating all modes of expression: reading, writing, and speaking.
Moscrop’s Leadership Program is not an exclusive club. Regarding involvement, a student does not miss out if they don’t start in either grade eight or nine. “First timers” are always welcome, providing they have the energy and demonstrated commitment for a program such as this. Accordingly, positions within English Leadership are by application.
Leadership 10 will allow students to use their collective strengths and energies towards making your school a more vibrant place. Leadership students will learn a lot about themselves, their classmates and create lasting memories.
Expectations in PE Leadership will be the same as any other PE class. The majority of the days will be spent doing PE in a variety of facilities (gyms, fields, forest, church, Wesburn, weight room, mat room and classroom).
Students are also requried to participate in leadership events and also create their own events for the school to participate in. The days leading up to the Leadership event will be used to focus on said event. Students will need to be flexible in what they may be stretches whereby we will be focusing on PE or only on Leadership actitivities.
Senior Leadership (grade 11/12)
This course offers the students the opportunity to develop leadership skills through a variety of in-school and out-of-school- experiences. Through consultation and collaboration with other “leadership” groups in the school, you will learn the skills of effective leaders. This course is intended to be student driven. The direction of the course and the productivity of the group are dependent on each member’s participation and input. The success of the course and our year as leaders at Moscrop is dependent on what you as an individual and you, as a group, are willing to invest. The course is composed of one block of 30 students, evenly split in number between the grades. They oversee all major “Big Ticket” events at Moscrop, including dances and special activities such as Cornfest, Pancake Day, and Woodstock. This class is a “get up and go do it” group that has the experience to create a very vibrant social scene. Many students in Senior Leadership elect to take the class for two years: however, involvement for both years is not mandatory.
First Nations Leadership 12
The focus of this course is to foster leadership skills and attitudes among First Nations youth at Moscrop Secondary, as well as build positive self-identity and community relations. Students will explore historical and contemporary First Nations cultural practices, acknowledge the struggle of Indigenous peoples for belonging, identify leaders and mentors in Aboriginal culture, identify and challenge perceptions of Aboriginal culture in the contemporary world, as well as locate local, national, and global Aboriginal organizations which support Aboriginal peoples in various ways. Working together in and outside of the classroom alongside the local Aboriginal community, groups, and larger organizations, students will help plan, organize and execute events and activities to share and promote positive Aboriginal cultural understandings and develop positive self-image and leadership skills. The course is also open to non-aboriginal students interested in this topic and who are keen to develop and foster Aboriginal cultural understandings for themselves and others.
