This is one of several self-mentoring role-plays appropriate for middle school students that teaches anti-bullying and self-mentoring concepts.

Role-play description

What is the role-play about? You can watch the slideshow to find out. You can also read the description below.

Self-mentoring role-play description: Here is a story scenario you can use to help teach about the need for Self-Mentoring when you are a victim of false rumors and trying to get to the bottom of a he said – she said situation. Have you ever had one of those he said / she said situations where you are not sure who to believe? That’s what happened to Cindy and Emily.

Troublemaker Donny decided to make trouble for both Emily and Cindy. He would tell Emily that Cindy spread a rumor about her. He would tell Cindy that Emily was spreading a rumor about her. Emily’s inner wisdom alerted her that Donny was lying; therefore, she did not take the rumor seriously. Unfortunately, Cindy believed Donny was telling the truth. She was determined to get revenge on Emily for tainting her name. Would Cindy realize the truth before it was too late?

Role-play directions

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: We will now act out the role-play based on the last story you just heard called “Who Really Started the Rumor about Cindy.”

The role-play features three guy actors: Donny, Greg, and Jim.

The role-play also features four girl actors: Cindy, Emily, Misty, and Alicia

The big parts are Donny, Cindy, and Emily. The medium-sized to small-sized parts are Misty, Greg, Jim, and Alicia.

The rest of the class will take turns reading the parts of Narrator 1 and Narrator 2.

Who is interested in playing these roles? (Either pull names or accept eager student volunteers.)

A paper-saving suggestion

To save paper, you might only want to duplicate ten copies of the role-play and then have your students share the script between them. If you have an overhead projector or some way to project the role-play from the slideshow onto the wall or screen, you could save paper altogether.
