This publication includes practical suggestions for emphasizing responsibility in social studies classes for grades 9-12, and is a companion to "Building a Foundation for Citizenship," which outlines steps for establishing a citizen/character education program in North Carolina public schools. Strategies for teaching the social studies strands "Economic, Legal and Political Systems" and "United States History" include intellectual exercises that require students to learn and make choices related to responsibility.
