This is one of several anger management role-plays appropriate for middle school students that teaches anti-bullying and anger management concepts.
What is the role-play about? You can watch the slideshow to find out. You can also read the description below.
Anger Management role-play description: Here is a story scenario you can use to help teach about Anger Triggers, Anger Cues, and Anger Management techniques. This story demonstrates that it is not appropriate to make threats or promises to administer bodily harm at school. The action of making threats or pulling pranks can often backfire as it did for Greg, Tim, and Bruce in this story called “Pranks, Idle Threats, and Promises.”
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:

Teacher Says or Asks: The role-play features four guy actors: Bruce, Greg, Tim, and Mr. Sawyer, the School Principal.
The role-play also features four girl actors: Teacher on Duty, Candace, School Secretary, and Mrs. Johnson.
Bruce, Greg, Tim, and Mr. Sawyer have medium-sized to big parts. The Teacher on Duty and Candace have medium-sized parts. The School Secretary and Mrs. Johnson have really small parts.
The rest of the class will take turns reading the parts of Narrator 1 and Narrator 2.

A paper-saving suggestion
