This project involves researching the academic and social effects of leadership programs for exceptional 5th grade students. These students attend a Title I elementary school in Boise, Idaho. Students attend bi-weekly leadership trainings to increase confidence as a leader and learn leadership skills. They will be observed during these trainings and in the everyday classroom. Results will be based upon academic fluctuation and successes accomplished from before the Everyday Leadership Program and throughout the program. Social constraints will also be researched through classroom interactions and observation, as well as behavior with other classmates, and overall self-confidence. All students personal information involved in this program will remain confidential and pseudonyms will be used. This project will provide valuable information as to whether leadership programs are effective for students in Title I schools.
