Spotlight on WCTE Summer Interns
Last Updated by
The Aspects of Leadership Summer Institute is an intensive seven-week program and completely free of charge for LEDA Scholars. It includes leadership training, academic writing instruction, standardized test preparation, college guidance, and community building.
The Summer Institute provides LEDA Scholars with a unique range of learning experiences that help them develop and sharpen their problem-solving skills and open the door to reaching their potential as students and leaders.
The Aspects of Leadership curriculum concentrates on the development of ethical and effective leadership through an exploration of some of the toughest policy issues facing the world in the 21st Century.
The seven-week curriculum engages students with innovative teaching and learning techniques that are highly effective, fun and memorable. They include role-play simulations, student debates, mock trials and critical thinking games. We use interactive computer programs, innovative group discussion techniques, and other methods carefully tailored to accommodate individual learning needs. The classroom activities have been designed not only to convey exciting content related to leadership, but more fundamentally to develop the critical thinking skills vital to students’ academic and personal development.
