Matt Falsely Accuses Jonathan Of Stealing

There are two middle school students who are really good friends: Matt and Jonathan.

Imagine that one day you go to your locker to get your lunch money. Much to your surprise, the lunch money is not there. Your immediate impulse is to imagine that someone has stolen your lunch money. But who?

Next thing you know, you look up and see one of your really good friends brandishing money around. Naturally, you think it must be yours. Right away, you demand, "Give it back?"

As for your friend, it really is his money. He was just holding it up as if to say, "I have my lunch money. Go get yours and let's get to lunch. I'm starving!"

That is how the story of Matt and Jonathan begins. Due to this misunderstanding, Matt ends up punching Jonathan in the nose.

If you were Jonathan, would you ever forgive Matt? Find out what happens by reading the story included in the link at the bottom of the hub.

Anger Management Role-Play about Matt and Jonathan

A scripted role-play is included in the lesson plan that teachers can print off and use with his or her middle school students. It is in the form of a PDF file. To save on paper, you might only want to print off ten copies that the students can pass around and share. If you have a large screen projector, perhaps you could post the role-play on that and save on paper altogether.

Choose eager volunteers to play the actor parts. Then have the rest of the class take turns reading the narrator parts. The students really enjoy this process.

You will also get directions how to introduce the role-play which is a scripted version of the story.
