Whole Group Activity:
Teacher and students move to page two of the worksheet. Teacher explains Venn diagram and ensures that students are aware of directions. Students complete the worksheet, working in pairs if necessary.

Students reflect on their own lives and answer the last question about leadership and what situations they may have been in and what was good or bad about that experience.
