Developing Personal and Social Responsibility. A Guide to Community Action.
Grossnickle, Donald R.; Stephens, Ronald D.
Noting that much is known about teaching and learning personal and social responsibility but little is incorporated into the K-12 curriculum, this book is intended for parents and educators as a guide to helping children develop personal and social responsibility, especially as it relates to behavior in school. Part 1 of the book consists of five chapters: (1) "Making Responsibility Education a Priority at Home and School"; (2) "Teaching Responsibility"; (3) "Exploring the Meaning of Personal and Social Responsibility"; (4) "Setting Goals for Learning To Be Responsible"; and (5) "Parents and Schools: Co-Partners in Teaching Responsibility." Part 2 consists of one chapter that provides examples of model practices in teaching personal and social responsibility, while the single chapter that makes up part 3 describes 16 exemplary programs, resources, and references for parents, schools and the community. Six appendixes contain a sample teaching unit from the Character Education Institute, a sample responsibility lesson from the Home School Institute, a description of a responsible student from a high school department, a letter from a teacher to parents on course responsibility, a sample parent-student handbook, and a list of responsibility-oriented elementary school behavioral expectations.
