All of your marching band leadership team needs training but not all of them will be able to attend a formal leadership camp. This set gives you everything you need to easily put on your own leadership camp right from your own band room for a fraction of the price of sending only one student to a leadership camp. The training will run 6-8 hours depending on how you structure the camp and how much discussion your students generate. You can structure it as a one day camp, 2 evening camp, 10 after school sessions, or whatever else would work best for your band!
This program was designed to cover exploration of leadership topics and application of these topics to your own program. It contains 10 sections in a PowerPoint with a student workbook that accompanies the PowerPoint.
Sections 1-7 explore topics such as defining leadership, giving effective praise and feedback, building relationships, and handling conflict. Each section has a video, reflection questions (located in student workbook), and group discussion questions. Some sections also have partner activities.
Sections 8-10 allow students to practice and plan for the upcoming season. They will practice marching commands, develop skills for leading a sectional, learn how to write goals/set goals for the season, and complete a SWOT analysis for the band as a whole in order to set goals for the entire band.
