Leadership is different from any other class on campus. Your assignments are the activities that are given to you each day in class. Your grade is based on your attendance and your participation in the activities, in addition to your participation in Student Council Meetings and responsibility to being a role model on campus. You will have 2 test and several small assignments that relate to your activities and ability to remember the info given to you during class.
