Responsible Thinking Process Teaches respect for others by fostering responsible thinking This process helps teach students to think responsibly and to be responsible for their own behavior. RTP helps to create a classroom environment that maximizes the time spent on teaching and learning. Through a series of questions, the teacher asks the student to evaluate his/her actions, and make a responsible choice about behavior.
Responsible Thinking Process What are you doing? What are the rules? What happens when you break rules? Is that what you want to happen? What do you want to do now? What will happen if you disrupt again?
