Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Heeding the Call: A Program on Justicemaking for Junior High School Youth

Leader Resource 3: Scenarios

Scenario 1:

My sister drives me crazy. She just goes along with whatever her friends say.

Scenario 2:

My history teacher told me that I need to listen more and talk less. That's the same thing my art teacher told me. I do listen. They just ramble on too long.

Scenario 3:

My dad always talks about how irresponsible drivers are these days. When they cut him off in traffic, he starts yelling. But he never talks about how responsible they are when they let him merge onto the freeway.

Scenario 4:

My mom saw someone crash their skateboard into a car once and now she won't let my older brother ride a skateboard.

Scenario 5:

My grandpa says you can't trust anyone who doesn't speak English. He says they're just trying to take advantage of you. But he loved his mom — my great-grandma — and she emigrated to the U.S. from Germany and never learned to speak English.

Scenario 6:

Michael is a disrespectful teammate. Whenever we win a game, he goes around telling everyone at school that "he" won the game. Yet we're a team. We need everyone on the team to play well for us to win.
