KC West has been using the idealistic leader traits as community builders in her English 10 classroom. Each week she has presented a different trait and students have worked on defining the traits, either with a circle map or an A to Z taxonomy.
Not only have these discussions of idealist traits helped KC build relationships with her students, but also students have reported that they have used information from classroom discussions outside of class, even at job interviews.
The idealistic leader traits from Admission Possible are:
"Strive to be DELIGHTFUL!
ENERGIZE those in your presence.
Keep your EYES ON THE PRIZE.
CHALLENGE CYNICISM whenever you encounter it.
MOCCASIN the lives of others. Imagine life in someone else's moccasins.
Learn to be GRATEFUL.
