    I've been teaching Student Council (middle school level) for the past three years as my elective. It is a leadership class that handles the things that most StuCo clubs do- community service, school spirit, fundraising, etc. My class meets daily for an hour and I tend to have most of the same students for both semesters during the year.

    I was hoping to find others who teach a similiar class or advise a club that would be willing to share ideas. I am in the process of creating a new syllabus for my class and looking for new activities and assignments for my students.

    Thanks in advance!!

    We have a leadership class at the high school. I know they read 7 habits of highly effective teens.

    High school StuCo moderator here--I'd be happy to share ideas, but I don't teach a class. I meet with my StuCo one a month (about 80 students) and with the Executive Board 1-2 a month. We organize the "fun" activities around the school, and we participate in quite a few service projects.

    I also do not teach a class, but I am the club sponsor. Last year, we started a newsletter that was printed once a month. :woot: The newsletter (one page, front and back) included things like scholarship information, ACT and other academic deadlines, tips on being a leader, quotes from famous leaders, crossword puzzles, jokes, leader of the month (teachers nominated one student from each class and we randomly drew a name - a short write-up by the teacher was also included), information/congratulations to the other clubs/sports for accomplishments, etc. The students came up with most of the ideas and because the paper was only one-page, front and back, we rotated the headlines. This kept the paper interesting. :haha: The club members loved it because they were able to use technology and other skills and talents that were not being used. I didn't think this project would be approved since we already have a school paper that is printed twice a month, but was ecstatic when it was. We raised funds to pay for the paper, ink, etc. with a bake sale during our town's festival. :)
