TCNJ Lesson Plan

Lesson 9- Responsibility

Student Name: Gabi Sabony School Name: Hopewell Elementary School

Grade Level: 2 Host Teachers Name: Claudia Scotti

Guiding and/or Essential Questions: What is responsibility? How can we be responsible?

Pre-lesson Assignments and/or Student Prior Knowledge:

The class will come back into the room from recess with papers and other materials all over the
room. I will assess the students to see if they clean up the mess that they did not make or if they
leave it all on the floor. Students should know what being responsible is and what they are
responsible for (e.g. making their bed, doing their homework).

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.2.1.b. Build on others' talk in conversations by linking their comments to
the remarks of others.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.2.1.a. Follow agreed-upon rules for discussions (e.g., gaining the floor in
respectful ways, listening to others with care, speaking one at a time about the topics and texts
under discussion).
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.2.1.c. Ask for clarification and further explanation as needed about the
topics and texts under discussion.

Scenario cards
Materials for mess
Anchor chart paper

Plan for set-up/distribution/cleanup of materials:

I will copy all necessary worksheets before the lesson, and make sure that all materials are
readily available and accessible prior to the lesson. I will collect all activity materials from the
students at the end of the lesson. I will prepare the anchor chart before the lesson and place it on
the board when I am ready to begin the lesson.

Step by Step plan:

1. Lesson beginning: I will begin the lesson by explaining that I placed all of the materials
around the room earlier in the day to see how they would react. (The students should
have been responsible and cleaned up the mess that was left.) I will say, I am so proud
of you all for being so responsible and picking up the mess, especially because it was not
your mess and you did it all by yourselves.
2. I will show a video about responsibility:
3. After the video, I will ask, Which pillar of character did you see in the video? Answer
that I am looking for: responsibility. I will then introduce an anchor chart, with
categories What does it mean?, Characteristics, Examples, and Non-examples. The class
will discuss and share their thoughts about each of the categories, one at a time.
4. The students will then be assigned a random partner and will be given a piece of paper
with a scenario. The scenarios are all different and discuss responsible and irresponsible
actions. The pairs have to discuss the scenario and determine if they think it is a
responsible act, an irresponsible act, or say if they are unsure what it is.
5. Once each group has determined what the act is, the pairs will share with the class. They
will read the scenario to the class, say what they determined it to be, and explain their
thinking. I will ask the class if they have different thoughts or responses for the
scenarios. If the pair is confused if the scenario is responsible or not, we will ask the rest
of the class to help determine what the scenario is.
6. Closing: I will then collect the scenario cards. I will send the students to get ready to go
to lunch.
Key Questions:
Is this an irresponsible or responsible act? Why do you think this scenario is responsible or
irresponsible? Which pillar of character did you see in the video? What does responsibility
mean? What are characteristics of responsibility? What are examples of responsibility? What are
non-examples of responsibility?

Introduction: 2 minutes
Video: 8 minutes
Anchor chart/discussion: 10 minutes
Scenario discussion: 6 minutes
Scenario presentation: 10 minutes
Total: 36 minutes

Transitions: During the lesson, students will be instructed to move around the room, from seats
to the rug and the rug to their seats quietly and attentively.

Classroom Management: Students will be instructed to use the connection sign and raise their
hands for connections and questions (respectively). I will walk around during the activities to
ensure that students are staying on task and will answer and questions and concerns. Materials
will be ready and set up before the lesson to eliminate time wasted during the lesson. I will
prepare partnerships for the scenarios beforehand and tell the students who their partners are for
the activity as the activity starts.

Early finishers will be instructed to make sure their work is completed with their full effort and
then read books about the Six Pillars of Character until it is time to begin the next activity.
Students who need assistance will receive help and guidance from the teacher.
