Naylor, David T.
This document contains an instructional booklet on responsibility for use by social studies classroom teachers in grades two and three as they develop and implement a law-related education program. It also contains spiritmaster handouts for use by students. Objectives of the unit include helping primary age children clarify their feelings and beliefs about responsibilities, recognize examples of responsible behavior and the consequences of irresponsible behavior, and to assess the degree to which they accept responsibility. The unit is presented in 11 lessons. Titles are, Are You Able? At what Age? Whose Responsibility is it? What are Some of My Responsibilities? Rules and Responsibilities at school. Parents Have Responsibilities, Too! Responsibilities of Others in the Community; How Do You Feel About Responsibility? Who is Being More Responsible? What if People Didn't Follow Rules? and How Responsible Am I? Students are involved in a variety of activities, including stating reasons for ability or inability to accept specified responsibilities, explaining why people are given different responsibilities, writing paragraphs about responsibilities one is able to fulfill, drawing pictures of responsibilities one is or is not able to fulfill, coloring and cutting out pictures of children being able to perform tasks responsibly at various ages, describing skills necessary to perform a variety of jobs at home and at school, and listing activities in various areas, such as health, safety, property, and getting along with others. For each lesson, information is presented on overview, objectives, procedures, activities, and handouts. Handouts which accompany the lessons include matching exercises, word puzzles, fill-in-the blanks exercises, stories and cartoons illustrating responsibilities, and lists of responsibilities which apply to various situations.
