Storyboard Text

  • Kate was caught cheating on her math test. She had gotten away with it before, but nothing lasts forever. Now she was terribly sad and in big trouble!
  • Let me have that piece of paper you were looking at...
  • I don't have any paper...I was just taking the test.
  • Now, here she was sitting outside of the principal's office with her mother. She felt awful and ashamed for what she did.
  • She had wanted to get an A so bad that she didn't care how she did it. Now her mother was disappointed!
  • Why did you cheat? You know it is wrong...
  • I just wanted to get an A...
  • She realizes that learning should be her focus, not the letter grade. She knows if her focus is on learning she will do well and that cheating will only bring her suffering.
  • At home she has time to reflect. She knows that what she did was wrong and tells herself that she must study hard if she wants to get a good grade. She is upset at herself for lying...
  • She spends a lot more time in the library studying, reading, trying to truly understand what she is being taught in school. She gets interested in finding ways to control her test anxiety, reads lots of self help books and discovers meditation as a helpful tool. She decides to practice it.
  • How is school going?
  • Great! I have a math test tomorrow and I'm done studying for it!
  • Now, Kate takes a minute to take a deep breath before taking her math test. She no longer feels the need to get an A. Whatever grade she gets will do, because it will reflect her level of understanding.
