Success through Accepting Responsibility. Principal's Handbook: Creating a School Climate of Responsibility. Revised Edition.
Brooks, B. David
Success Through Accepting Responsibility (STAR) is primarily a language program, although the values have a relationship to social studies topics. Through language development the words, concepts, and skills of personal responsibility may be taught. This principal's handbook outlines a school-wide systematic approach for building a positive school climate around self-esteem and personal responsibility. Following an introduction, the handbook is organized into eight sections: planning and implementation; kick-off activities; year-long activities; sustaining events and activities; end-of-year activities; parent and community involvement; evaluations and reports; and principal's memos.
