Story Description: Here is a story scenario you can use to help teach about the importance of being an advocate for someone who is viewed as being an outcast and loner.
Oscar is a middle school student who is viewed as an outcast at his school. No one will sit with him. No one will be his friend. The only ones who talk to him are the bullies who constantly put him down and push him around. Oscar has no idea how to fix or change things for the better. Then one day, a new girl enters his homeroom.
