Hey Tom, are you ready for that history exam tomorrow?
Tom and Michelle have been friends for a while now. Michelle knows how much Tom struggles with school. Tom is feeling discouraged about his history exam.
Hi Michelle, I don't know. I've been studying, but it's just so hard.
Want to meet at the cafe tonight to study? Maybe I can help you.
Michelle is hoping she can help Tom learn the material for the test. Tom is grateful for the gesture, but still isn't feeling too confident about the test.
Sure, that would be great!
Ok, Tom..When did World War II begin?
Tom has had enough studying for one night. He is bored and doesn't feel like putting in the effort that he should. Have you ever felt like this before a test?
Umm... I have no idea! Studying is boring.. I think i'm going to just go home.
Psst.. Michelle. What's the answer for number 5??
Tom is making a big mistake by trying to cheat on the test. Not only is he being dishonest but he could end up with a zero! Michelle seems to be bothered by Tom's request. Have you ever been in either of these situations?
I'm not telling you Tom.. That's cheating!
Tom seems remorseful about the situation that happened. Michelle is showing patience and is trying to be a good friend to Tom. What would you do if you were in Michelle's situation?
Hi Michelle, I failed the test today. I didn't study like I should have. I'm sorry that I tried to get you to cheat.
I'm sorry to hear that Tom. Thanks for your apology. Want to go for a walk? I'd like to share something with you.
Tom, have you ever thought about the importance of honesty? Honesty is a character trait that is very important. Being honest means being truthful in your actions and communications. Also, people can trust you when you're honest.
Michelle gave Tom some good advice on being honest. He seems like he understands the importance of honesty and is ready to make better decisions. Do you feel that being honest is an important character trait? If so, how would you show honesty in your everyday life?
Wow, you're right. Trying to cheat on that test today was not showing honesty. I'm going to start doing my best to show honesty in everything I do. After all, I want others to trust me and I really want to be a good role model for my little brother. Thanks for being a good friend Michelle. Now let's go study for our math test!
