The Teen Bill of Responsibilities Course
Starts Jan 28, 2013
at Los Angeles Southwest College
The Teen Bill of Responsibilities Course is based on the Teen Bill of Responsibilities book. The Course is FREE to all schools and students. Basic Course highlights:
• If you have rights, you have responsibilities
• The difference between “blame” and “responsibility”
• The Power of Personal Responsibility
Students discuss questions asked by the teacher, drawing from their own life experiences. Neither the teacher nor the author “tells” the students what to think. Using the Guided Discussion method, teachers teach students how to think, not what to think.
1. General discussion of responsibility
2. Personal Responsibility as it pertains to Family
3. Personal Responsibility as it pertains to School and Friends
4. Personal Responsibility as it pertains to Neighborhood, Community and Country
5. Personal Responsibility as it pertains to Tolerance
6. The Power of Personal Responsibility
The Class Consists of Two Parts
The class will be given on Mondays from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The Teen Bill of Responsibilities Course takes about 45 minutes. Therefore, the remaining 45 minutes will be filled with various activities, including additional speakers, college preparation assistance, advice about obtaining financial aid for college, some tutoring, homework assistance, and developing strategies for success in school. Activities provided during this 45-minute segment will vary depending on the needs and desires of each individual class, the expertise of the teachers, and availability of speakers.
The Course will periodically provide speakers from the community to talk to students about issues pertinent to the course and of interest to students. For example, we may have business leaders come in and talk about how taking personal responsibility can lay the foundation for starting a business, launching a successful career, or raising capital to promote a new idea.
