What’s the story about?
Story Description: We are now going to hear a story about sixth-grader Little Jack. Watch how his fear of dying socially motivates him to either decide to do the VICTIM THING or to decide to act like a HERO. This story is called “The ‘ordinary world’ of Little Jack.”
Please note: This boy is called ‘Little Jack’ by the older guys he hangs out with after school. Why? One of the eighth-grade boys is also named Jack. To avoid confusion, they call the older boy ‘Big Jack’ and this sixth-grade boy ‘Little Jack’.
