Leadership Education: Phases of Learning (Volume 2 of the Leadership Education Library)
This is volume 2 of the Leadership Education Library, a follow up to the Thomas Jefferson Education, which has a focus on leadership and a love of learning. Leadership education occurs in several general phases, each vital to superior learning. This book is designed to help the reader study these phases as they unfold. In part 1, you examine the philosophies of leading educators in modern times. In part 2, you will discuss the 55 ingredients of a home environment for leadership education. Part 3 explains the phases of scholar and depth necessary to truly meet a student's potential in the face of differing societal norms. Part 4 discusses the role of grandparents. This book emphasizes getting off the conveyor belt and onto the leadership path. It is a combination of philosophy and application, so not a light read by any means, but really good information. 3rd edition, 340 pp, sc. ~ Sara
Often cited by the DeMilles as their favorite work to date, this inspirational manual picks up where the primer/overview work, A Thomas Jefferson Education leaves off. It develops in depth not only the philosophy but also the nuts-and-bolts application of each individual Phase, the critical Transitions between Phases and the "big-picture" vision to begin with the end in mind. Those who master the content in this book leave behind the question, "But how do you actually DO it?"
