"We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future." ― George Bernard Shaw.
Responsibility is accepting that you are the cause and the solution to the matter. Responsibility is one of our character traits, which means that a person can respond to his action, take on some duties, and face the inevitable consequences of an activity that may occur. Responsibility is something every person should cultivate in himself. It should become a part of our personality. When you are responsible, it is easier to gain the respect of your people, and you get a decent place in our society.
Responsibility is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings. Our children will not become responsible unless they have a responsibility, like everything else that starts at home. The foremost goal of teaching is to make them successful adults who contribute to society. Try to indulge your children in everything you do. Make them feel that their opinion is valued. When your children do something, praise their efforts. It will motivate them to do better.
How can you teach your students to be responsible in school, at home and outside? Give at least two examples in each case.
Children learn what they see, so be extra careful of your actions in front of them. Responsible teachers raise responsible citizens. By teaching your students to be responsible in the classrooms, you are also teaching them to be responsible at home and in their communities. In the class, discuss the various duties to be performed by the students at school. Each student can be assigned a job: note down the names of the uniform defaulters or turn off the lights and fans when everyone leaves the classroom.
At home, I'm responsible for packing my school bag, putting the books and notebooks according to the timetable and for the lunch box. Teach him that while coming back from school, you have to keep your shoes in the proper place and ensure that homework has been done sincerely.
We can guide to fulfilling the social responsibilities as a student like:
Keep the surroundings clean, and put the litter and put it in the bin. To keep a check on reducing energy and water consumption. Whenever they attend any function, such as a wedding, not to waste food and only take the desired amount.
How strong is the culture of cooperation in your classroom?
As a coordinator of class IX and X after Covid, it is noticed that students need to be more cooperative in their classrooms as for a long time they were alone at their home and some values of being cooperative in the class they have forgotten. Whenever a new student is there in the class, there is one buddy for that student for a week or more than that who takes care of that new student and guides him regarding the rules and regulations of the school. In the class, during lunch break, students share their food items.
Many events and school functions allow students to collaborate and coordinate, through which students imbibe the very spirit of teamwork. Ms Nitin Sharma Kamla Nehru Public School, Phagwara JOL Cohort 2022
