## Reflection: Accountability Not Part, But All Of It - Section 2: Make It Whole Again

I have some students in my room that constantly make excuses as to why they cannot complete their task.  Students usually get a bit noisy and fussing when working creatively.  I want to ensure that all students are held accountable for their own success. Holding students accountable for their work will help them become responsible learners.  To do this, I remind students that they are all a part of the group, and without their total effort towards completing their task they hurt the group as a whole.  We go over some of the" Do Nots" that help promote a healthy learning environment.

Do not make excuses.

Do not disrespect others.

Do not speak out because it disturbs others.

These are just to name a few, but for the most part these “Do Nots” will help cultivate a healthy atmosphere for all students.
