  5. Writing, Grade 10 • Write a letter explaining the meaning of responsibility as it relates to the high school experience. This letter will be included in a high school orientation booklet. You may use the following information, your own experiences, observations, and/or readings. • Responsibility: 1. The quality, state, or fact of being responsible. 2. Something for which one is accountable: duty. • Source: Webster’s II New College Dictionary • Responsibility is the thing people dread most of all. Yet it is the one thing in the world that develops us. • Source: Frank H. Crane • We must exchange the philosophy of excuse–what I am is beyond my control–for the philosophy of • responsibility. • Source: Barbara Charline Jordan • It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for what we do not. • Source: Jean Baptiste PoquelinMoliére • To achieve a healthy level of self-esteem, you must be able to accept who you are and be confident about your • decisions and behavior. But there is another important ingredient in the development of self-esteem that is • often overlooked–the ability to take responsibility for your future. To live self-responsibly, you must be able to • influence your behavior freely in three major areas: ... • • Taking action in ways that will help you reach your goal • • Being accountable for your decisions, priorities and actions • • Thinking for yourself by examining and actively choosing the values that will guide you, rather than • blindly accepting whatever you’re told by ... friends or the culture in which you live. • Since being responsible for yourself requires effort, thought and a range of difficult decisions, many people • convince themselves that it is an impossible challenge. Some blame others for their problems. Others hope that • someone will come along and make everything all right. • Remember: You cannot respect or trust yourself if you continually pass on to others the burdens of your • existence. • Source: Nathaniel Branden, “All About Responsibility” • As you write a letter explaining the meaning of responsibility as it relates to the high school experience, remember to • Focus on the meaning of responsibility as it relates to the high school experience. • Consider the purpose, audience, and context of your letter. • Organize your letter so that your ideas progress logically. • Include relevant details that clearly develop your letter. • Edit your letter for standard grammar and language usage. • Use the blank sheet of paper given to you by your teacher to plan your letter. Anything you write on the blank sheet • will not be scored. You must write the final copy of your letter on the next page. • Write the final copy of your letter on the next page. Can you write one of these?
