Rights, Repsonsibilities, and Privileges Revisited

Words change their meaning.  When I first taught fifth grade, I created this activity for students to look up the meanings of rights, responsibilities, and privileges.  They would brainstorm examples and we would discuss what this would look like in our classroom.

I taught other grade levels for several years and returned to fifth grade this year.  As I was preparing my beginning of the year activities, I realized that how I thought about privilege in the past had changed.

I have updated this lesson to reflect the idea that privilege isn't always something that is earned.  I still call my incentive system "Privileges", but it is with the understanding that privilege has different meanings in different contexts.
