RESPONSIBILITY: means to be accountable, dependable and trustworthy for what you say or do. A responsible person is able to answer for their own actions and obligations; is able to choose between what is right or wrong; takes care of themselves as well as other; and fulfills tasks with reliability and commitment.

HOW TO BE A RESPONSIBLE PERSON

  • Be accountable for your own actions and words
  • Fix your mistakes
  • Don't make excuses or blame others
  • Think before you act or speak and consider the consequences
  • When you agree to do something, do it!
  • Show that you can be reliable and dependable
  • Don’t make others do what you are supposed to do
  • Help take care of your school and environment

HOW CAN TEACHERS MODEL RESPONSIBILITY?

  • Be organized and prepared
  • Give recognition when a student has acted responsibly
  • Give your students the opportunity to do tasks, make decisions, and take consequences for not completing individual or group work
