18 D O I H AVE R IGHTS ? As a student, you have rights, but your rights are limited to protect you and your peers. For example, you cant say whatever you want in a speech at a school event. Your school can require you to be respectful and appropriate. When you are an adult, you have more freedom to do and say what you want. Does this seem fair to you? Give a thumbs up or down! Why might it be important for students to have limited rights in school? Give ONE reason it might be important. Blaaaah blah blahhh blah…

19 W HAT D O A LL T HESE R IGHTS M EAN F OR M E ? With rights, or freedoms, come… RESPONSIBILITY!!! There you go again! Explain yourself!

20 RESPONSIBILITIES Definition: The expectation that you will take care of certain things or perform duties Oh! Stuff were supposed to do!

21 T YPES OF R ESPONSIBILITY Personal Duties Things you have to do! o Jury Duty o Pay Taxes o Obey Laws o Register for Selective Service o Get an Education Social Responsibilities Things you should do! o Stay Informed o Tolerate Others o Protect Public Safety o Register to Vote o Speak Your Mind Just like rights, there are different kinds of responsibilities. We must pay taxes and should register to vote!

22 Yes! As a student, your list of responsibilities might look a little different. Your list may not include voting, but it probably includes respecting authority. Im a student… Do I have responsibilities??

23 YES! Is voting a right? Is voting also a responsibility? Do they ever overlap?

24 YES! What if you yelled FIRE! in a crowded movie theater? What RIGHT might be involved? What RESPONSIBILITY might be involved? Do they ever conflict?

25 In the crowded movie theater scenario, which is more important: The right? Or the responsibility? The responsibility. Even though you have a right to free speech, you have the responsibility to protect the public safety. It would be seriously unsafe to yell FIRE! in a crowded movie theater…
