Story re-told by Debbie Dunn. This story is based on an idea given to me by one of my past 7th-grade students.

After reading the anti-bullying tale called ‘The misunderstanding’, students will respond to six Bloom’s Taxonomy questions.

The teacher can use the questions as listed on the link called “Writing assignment: The misunderstanding.”

Alternatively, the teacher can print off the downloadable free worksheet called “Let’s write about the anti-bullying tale called ‘The misunderstanding’.”

What’s the story about?

Story Description: The idea for this role-play came from one of my former seventh-grade students. It demonstrates the importance of checking your facts before jumping to conclusions when hearing a rumor.

Check out the follow-up role-play that contains several discussion questions and a true anecdote that happened to several ninth graders years ago.
