ACTION Scenarios #5

ClassroomThe other day before class began several students were picking on another student about his hair. They were teasing him because he had started to go bald at a pretty young age. At first it seemed like an innocent joke, but then I could tell that the young man was getting upset about the situation. Everyone was laughing at him.

 

Which CARE Model strategy would you use to TAKE ACTION?

 
C: Tell the group of students that their behavior is mean and to stop picking on him

A: Inform the GSI or faculty

R: Ask a question about the homework to divert attention

E: Chime in to the conversation asking your peers why they felt okay to pick on someone?
