Anger Management role-play description: Here is a story scenario you can use to help teach about Anger Triggers, Anger Cues, and Anger Management techniques. The story is called “Sam Self-Mentors rather than giving in to Psychological Warfare.”
Sam was overwhelmed. Due to his Dad’s drinking and rage, Mr. Duncan lost his job, his wife, and moved his son to a new town. Adding to all the other losses, Sam’s new best friend Drew deserted him to join Shawn’s gang. What will Sam do now that Shawn and his gang are starting to play their psychological warfare games on him?
Note to the teacher: In addition to the role-play, you can also read it in story form. You might want to read the story to the class first and then have the class act out the role-play. Here’s the link:

Teacher Says or Asks: We will now act out the role-play based on the last story you just heard called “Sam self-mentors versus psychological warfare.”
The role-play features six guy actors: Sam, Mr. Campbell – the Communication Skills teacher, John, Stu, Drew, and Sam’s Dad.
The role-play also features five girl actors: Tracy, Kim, Mrs. Clarkson, Amanda, and Emily.
Sam and Mr. Campbell have really big parts. Sam’s Dad and Mrs. Clarkson have really small parts. The rest of the characters have medium-sized parts.
The rest of the class will take turns reading the parts of Narrator 1 and Narrator 2.
Who is interested in playing these roles? (Either pull names or accept eager student volunteers.)
