Today was the first day of our Habit of the Month: Respect. Since we had a short August with Responsibility, we are focusing on both habits this month. This year, each student will have a Class Culture composition notebook. At different times throughout the year, they will be asked to write on any number of topics. This morning they were asked to write about both Respect and Responsibility: What does it mean? and how is it shown?
The goal was to have the students identify what these words mean to them and how they think these can be shown.
Afterwards, the following lists were created based on what they wrote. This also gives them their own documentation of the year.
