This teacher and counselor activity guide supplements the Why is Drama Always Following Me? chapter book, a thought-provoking and insightful exploration of the ups and downs of middle school friendships, particularly among girls.
True-to-life situations and practical strategies for dealing with friendship drama are described in depth. The guide pairs text from the story with probing questions and creative activities that allow teachers, counselors, or group leaders to engage students in meaningful discussions about betrayal, envy, lies, conflict, open-mindedness, forgiveness and other issues related to friendship.
After reading the story and completing the activities, students of all ages will be empowered to examine the quality of their friendships, identify patterns of behavior that can potentially harm their relationships, and improve their social communication skills.
