Last week, my Ted-Ed Club we were talking about what makes an idea great and worth sharing. While they had came up with an idea that they were passionate about, they were struggling with what made ideas great. So, I had them search ed.ted.com for two videos on their topics. One of my students was looking for a talk on education and came across this jewel. In it, Simon Sinek describes what makes a good leader and there are great references in the talk that can be translated to the classroom and school environment.
I hope you can find the meaning in this that I have and start to help students understand what makes a great leader and why people follow them. Enjoy!
