Class Summary: We started out discussing the quote, "A person who feels appreciated will always do more than expected." Today, students should go to http://www.5lovelanguages.com/profile/teens/ and take the love languages assessment. Love languages are a way to think about how we feel appreciated. This can be used as a leader because if they know how their athlete, employee, voter etc. feels appreciated, it makes them much more perceptive to work hard and commit to a cause. Students were asked to reflect on their love language. Then they were to put themselves in a fictitious leadership role and show how they could use other's love languages to effectively show that they care.
