Goals:

Students will "recognize the positive contribution of character traits (such as tolerance, honesty, self-discipline, respectfulness, and kindness) to relationships, the benefit to relationships which include understanding and respecting individual differences, and the detrimental effect of prejudice (such as prejudice on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, class, or religion) on individual relationships and society as a whole." --Massachusetts Comprehensive Health Curriculum Framework

Resource Instructions

Have a conversation about how Rodney felt. Some discussion questions might include:
Do you think it was frustrating for Rodney when he wasn't able to pronounce his R's?
How do you think he felt when the other students couldn't understand him?
What could they have done to make him feel more at ease?
Do you think Rodney ever learned to pronounce his R's?
Have you ever felt uneasy about something you were not able to do?

Extensions:

Have a conversation to generate ways in which Camilla could have behaved differently, and what the end result would have been.
