A storyboard was created in which characters, who are at first reluctant, come to see vulnerability as a positive thing
Student Demonstrates Vulnerability to Classmates
Haha! You're right, Lisa!
Hey Lisa, I've been struggling with math. Can you help me with the homework after class, please?
I don't think so! Maybe you should stop sleeping in class and pay attention!
Classmates Discover the Reason for His Vulnerability
Mom, why is this happening to me? I'm not even doing well in my classes!
Dan, I am so sorry but the doctors just told me your condition is getting worse.
We made a mistake...
Classmates Talk About How They Treated a Student Wrongly
Yeah... We should be more accepting of the neediness and dependence of others instead of blaming people for them.
Me neither... We shouldn't have treated him that way just because he was being needy.
I didn't know there was something wrong with Dan... How could we be so ignorant?
Classmate Tells Student That They Can Depend on Them for Help
Thank you, Lisa! I don't know how I could have gotten through this without your help.
Hey Dan, I just wanted to apologize for the way I treated you earlier. I should've known that when you exposed your vulnerability it was a sign of strength, not weakness. You can depend on me for help. We can work together to overcome the challenges you're having in math.
Classmates Apologize to Student
It's okay. It means a lot to me that you would all want to help!
I am so sorry for the way we treated you, Dan. I can help you with anything you need too. Can you please forgive me?
l'm really sorry too, Dan! You can depend on me for help with your classes as well!
Student and Classmates Become Friends
I had a lot of fun too! Thank you so much for all of your help! See you tomorrow!
Working on homework together was a lot of fun, Dan! We should do it more often! Let me know if you need any more help tomorrow and we can work on it! Bye!
