What is the role-play about? You can watch the slideshow to find out. You can also read the description below.
Communication Skills role-play description: Here is a modern version of an old favorite called “Little Red-Riding-Hood and Omega Wolf Bert.” The story teaches the importance of finding common ground between two opposing forces, empathy, using your survival instincts to help you through dangerous situations, the unpleasantness of name-calling, and the importance of making sincere apologies for wrong intentions and wrong-doing.
Frequently, other kids call Connie Blake by the name of Little Red-Riding-Hood because she regularly wears a red cloak. On her way to bringing muffins to her sick granny, she met an Omega Wolf by the name of Bert. Hoping to be more popular with his wolf pack, Bert hatches a plan to capture Connie. Will Connie survive?
Note to the teacher: In addition to the role-play, you can also read it in story form. You might want to read the story to the class first and then have the class act out the role-play. Here’s the link:

A paper-saving suggestion
