Part 5: Instead of the teacher reading the 3rd part of the story, the students will role-play it instead in Part 6.
Note to Teacher: Rather than the teacher reading Chapter 3, Part 3 to the class, the students will experience this section of the tale through the role-playing process when you get to Step 6. This will help economize on time and maximize student learning and enjoyment.

A. Students participate in scripted role-play called “Chapter 3: Bullies, Victims, & Bystanders at Kennedy Middle School.”
1st part of 3 Story Description: Seventh-grader Judd Ford is full of tension and stress. If it were not for Mr. Campbell watching him closely, he had fully intended to release his feelings of tension on his next target – Jared Christie.
2nd part of 3 Story Description: After learning about Bill’s fifth-grade cousin attempting suicide due to excessive bullying, Monica begins to rethink her bullying tactics of Daphne. As for Daphne, she had been so used to being bullied by Monica that she felt bullied all over again simply by noticing Monica’s probing stare.
3rd part of 3 Story Description: In Mr. Campbell’s class, they discuss the kinds of things that made many of the students feel stressed. A few members of the class shared what they did to try to de-stress. Finally, Mr. Campbell led the class in several breathing and stretching exercises that could help the students relieve their feelings of stress.
Please note: As Mr. Campbell leads his students through these exercises in the role-play, get your students to try these same exercises as well.

Note to Teacher: Hand out the Chapter 3 role-play (pages 1-15). Students should act out the entire role-play.
If you have a small class, simply have the students read the role-play in round robin style where each student will read the next part in the role-play with as much enthusiasm as they can. If it is a girl reader, read the boy parts sounding like a boy. If it is a boy reader, read the girl parts sounding like a girl. This adds a bit of humor and fun to the process.
