Naval Science 4
The purpose of this course is focused
solely on practical leadership. The intent is to assist the senior in
understanding leadership and improving their leadership skills by putting them
in positions of leadership, under supervision, then helping them analyze the
reasons for their varying degrees of success through the year. Classroom
activities include seminars, reading assignments, classroom presentations, and
practical work with younger cadets.
The course content includes instruction in theoretical and applied aspects of leadership, training, and evaluation of performance. Students will become aware of the techniques used to create motivation, develop goals and activities for a work group, and the proper ways to set a leadership example. Cadets will also apply these principles when dealing with younger cadets in the areas of military drill and inspections, athletic events, and in other school activities.
