Five Things Kids Learn When They Run for Student Council bu Monica Fuglei At the dinner table a few weeks ago, my fifth-grade daughter announced her intention to run for vice president of her student council. She secured her nomination by volunteering to run and we stayed up late one night making posters while I felt a little anxious about what would happen if she lost.
How government works One thing she learned about was the role and voice of students in her school.
We discussed the kind of benefits she would like to bring to the school and how she might convey that through her posters and campaigning.
This experience then led to several discussions about larger government elections and how United States citizens make their voices heard. Critical self-reflection When choosing the position she would run for, my daughter thought carefully about leadership and where she might fit in to the student council structure.
In doing so, she had to reflect on who she was and what strengths she could bring to a position of leadership. This is an excellent critical self-reflection that can really help students measure the roles that best fit them or even identify personal weaknesses they would like to shore up.
Stage fright aside, she had to learn to introduce herself, connect with her audience, and convey her vice presidential platform quickly and clearly. While public speaking can be daunting for many, this practice in front of her peers was quite helpful.
Empathy A student council campaign requires those running to try to understand what their classmates want from the school and how that can be measured against what the school administration and parent-teacher organization are able to provide to students.
Contemplating problems from many points of view helps students identify with others. She was disappointed, but there was another lesson in her campaign that came through quite clearly.
When the final votes were counted and the decision was announced, she felt confident that, while she personally would have been the best vice president, the student who was elected was also an excellent candidate.
As she watched other students going through what she did — creating posters, thinking empathetically about their peers, and speaking to the wants and needs of their classmates — she learned what it was like to be a member of a group whose goal was to serve and improve its community.
