This social science course is designed to further develop leadership skills, review and build on communication skills and basic oral presentation techniques. Cadets will review leadership traits, principles, and styles from the LET-1 curriculum. Cadets will also focus on learning the characteristics of assuming the role of leadership positions, with an emphasis on squad and platoon level positions. Identification and application of the values of leadership, management skills, acceptance of challenge, making a difference with service learning, and life-saving and first aid skills will be taught. The course is further complemented through studies of the American culture, American military policy, the Korean and Vietnam conflicts, and the freedoms guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. Armed drill procedures and the cadet challenge will also be presented. The Junior ROTC curriculum is enhanced through physical fitness activities, extracurricular and co-curricular activities that support the core competency skills and academic standards.
