We begin this quarter’s virtue focus on RESPONSIBILITY with a quote from Booker T. Washington that is on our hall and classroom posters: “Few things help an individual more than to place responsibility upon him and to let him know that you trust him.” We might add to Washington’s quote: And patiently help equip him to live up to that responsibility. If you have a student who is struggling to be responsible with his or her stuff or time, this summary of the book That Crumpled Paper Was Due Last Week might give you some good ideas to try (a goal sheet is included).
