DISABILITIES AWARENESS ANTI-BULLYING PLAYLETS (based on true stories)….
UPDATE: Our 5th grade Envision group performed these playlets during our school-wide morning television announcements. The results were heartwarming. Students had conversations during lunch, talking about the playlets. Kids gained a better understanding of students with disabilities. We saw new friendships form, with genuine talk about what it’s like to live with a disability. Some students spoke out with a commitment to take a stand against bullying. All in all, Disabilities Awareness playlets were a success! TRY IT!
These Disabilities Awareness Playlets will have your entire class involved.
There are over 50 million students in 99,000 public schools according to http://ies.ed.gov/. About 3 million students have a disability. A good number are subjected to teasing, ridicule and bullying.
These five scripts are based on true stories.
