A responsible person answers for his or her decisions and actions. Managing Responsibilities tells the stories of responsible people who made a difference throughout history—including Helen Keller, Eleanor Roosevelt, Ruby Bridges, and modern teens—and suggests to readers how they, too, may become more accountable for their actions at school, at home, with money, and on the Internet. Topics covered include: responsible Internet use; how people worked to change child labor practices; how football player Kevin Everett overcame a spinal cord injury to walk again; how Professor Liviu Librescu gave his life to protect his students during the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting.
Chelsea House titles offer informative, well written introductions to a wide variety of subjects.
