Lesson 5 The Movies
Script for The Movies
SCENE 1 Narrator Angie and Michael have been
talking to each other in the halls a lot and
have been walking with each other to classes.
It is clear to most of their friends that they
are interested in each other. Lewis is Michaels
best friend and Christina is Angies friend.
The four usually hang out with a group of other
friends. After school one Friday, they all
decide to go to the movie theater on Saturday
night.
Narrator Michael and Lewis arrive early to the
theater and decide to have a smoke while They
wait for the others. Angie and Christina come
around the corner near the door of the theater.
They greet each other and start talking about
the movie and the guys. Angie is the first one
to notice the boys smoking outside. Angie and
Narrator Christina look upset, and Angie
whispers to Christina. Angie Good thing
theaters are non-smoking. I dont want to
breathe second-hand smoke all
night! Narrator Michael and Lewis put out their
smokes and the group goes into the theater. The
four of them walk into the theater and take their
seats. Angie is obviously confused and shoots
a glance toward Christina. Christina gives
Angie a sympathetic look. Michael is oblivious
to their body language and watches the movie.
Lewis looks first at Michael, then at Angie and
then turns to Christina and offers her a
mint. END OF SCENE 1
27
Lesson 5 The Movies
THE MOVIES SCENE 1 CONT…
What does Angie see as the problem in this
situation? What are some alternatives for Angie?
Which alternatives are responsible,
respectful, and realistic? Which alternative do
you think is best? Why? In two or three days,
how might you evaluate your decision and action?
Why? What is going on with Lewis? What do you
think he is thinking?
THE MOVIES SCENE 2 (After the Show)
Narrator After the movie lets out, the four
friends walk outside laughing and talking about
the film. Angie I never would have guessed
that ending I nearly jumped out of my
seat! Lewis Yeah, and did you see the woman in
front of us jump? Christina Her scream scared me
more than the movie! Michael That really was the
best horror movie Ive seen all
summer. Narrator An embarrassing silence falls
on the group as they realize that they have run
out of things to say. Michael reaches into his
pocket. He pulls out a pack of cigarettes and
holds them out to Angie. Michael Wanna
cigarette? Narrator Angie has a sick look on her
face and doesnt know what to do. She looks at
Michael and then at Christina. All her friends
are silent. Christina has an odd look on her
face.
28
Lesson 5 The Movies
THE MOVIES SCENE 2 (After the Show)
What do you think Angie is feeling and thinking
now? What could Angie do? Explain. Is this a
realistic response? How so? Is it a responsible
thing to do? Why? Is it respectful to everyone
involved? Explain. In a few days, how would you
determine if it was a good decision?
29
Lesson 5 The Movies
THE MOVIES CONCLUSION
Angies friends help her out by offering some
responses to Michaels offer  Trey I dont
think that is the best way to impress a
girl!  Daniel Those are the worst! They are
really addictive!  Vinnie What a waste of
money!  Trey You dont have to smoke to be
cool!  Vinnie Kids know the tobacco companies
only want our money. Olivia What do you want
with that smelly stinking habit,
Angie? Christina That is just stupid! Its
going to kill you. Erin Oh, one doesnt kill.
You have to smoke for years before it can do
anything. Irma Are you kidding? Nicotine is
the most addictive drug. Not to mention the the
poison gases and tars. Olivia My mom has been
trying to quit for years! Christina Your
parents will ground you! Olivia Tell him, No
Way! Irma Tell him, Not these lungs! Erin
Tell him that youre disappointed that he is a
smoker, because you thought he was so
cool. Christina Tell him that smoking is
gross.   What are some other ways for Angie to
say no?

  • statement also gives the message that you mean
  • what you say.
  • I MESSAGES Describe how you are thinking
  • or feeling. Instead of saying, You are stupid
    for
  • drinking beer, SAY, I dont want to drink
  • because I dont think its a smart thing to do.
  • EXAMPLES OF CLEAR MESSAGES
  • No thanks, I dont smoke.
  • I dont want any beer. Do you have any soda?

Characters Christina Angie Vinnie Lewis T
rey Anthony Carlos Shauna Michael Victor

SCENE 1 (Making Plans) Narrator The group is
hanging out around the school, talking about the
basketball team and what they are planning to
do over the weekend. Christina and Lewis join
the group with news. Christina Hey, Anthony
wants us to come over to his house and make some
signs and stuff for the game tomorrow. His
parents wont be home until after six, so we
can raid the fridge and watch cable
too. Lewis All right! Anthonys parents have a
load of beer in the fridge! We could easily
sneak a few -- theyd never notice! Carlos Boy,
I want to stay as far away from that bad news as
I can. Angie Me too! Im not drinking until
Im legal. Too much, too fast for
me. Trey Yea, me too. I would get into a lot
of trouble with my folks. I want to get my
license some day and getting caught drinking
could really mess that up. Shauna Oh, come
on, this sounds like fun. What else do we have
to do? Christina Yeah, Anthonys older brother
is in high school and maybe hell be home- hes
my number one crush! Narrator Michael and Angie
have been quietly listening to all of this and
wondering to themselves, and now to each other,
about whether they should go to Anthonys. And
if they do, what should they do if they are
asked to drink beer?

_________________________________ With another
person in your group, try on your alternative

Your partner should act the part of the other
person. Discuss the party and then tell the
other actor that you… (whatever you have decided
to say). Then switch places with your partner so
he/she can try on their own response.

Lesson 6 Assertiveness
Hangin at Anthonys SCENE 2
Narrator Carlos, Trey, Lewis, Michael, Angie,
and Christina have heard that the gang is
heading over to Anthonys house, and decide that
they will drop-in. They arrive together.
Anthony is happy to see them, and they enter the
living room where several of their friends are
on the floor making posters. The stereo and
T.V. are both on and the volume is loud. Lewis
notices a couple of open beer cans on the
coffee table. Two boys are sitting on the
couch drinking beer and watching
television. Lewis I dont think Im gonna stay
this doesnt look good to me. Christina You got
that right. Lets split. Lewis Yeah, lets go
over to the community center and see whats
happening there. Narrator Christina and Lewis
leave Anthonys. The rest of the group goes into
the house. Carlos and Angie say their
hellos and make their way to the
kitchen. Shauna Hey Vinnie, this doesnt look
like fun to me. Vinnie Me either. Lets move
on. Carlos, you want to come with
us? Narrator Shauna, Vinnie and Carlos leave.
In the front room, several kids are laughing
loudly, others are standing around talking and
drinking sodas and some have beer. Michael asks
Angie if she wants to help out on a poster.
She agrees and the two of them come up with a
really cool picture of the other team looking
like they just got crunched under the shoe of a
basketball player from their own team. After
awhile Michael sits back and looks at
Angie. Michael Lets get something to
drink. Angie Okay, but only soda. Michael Okay.
You know something? This is really fun we
dont need beer to have a good
time. Angie Yeah, its fun being with you when
youre yourself. Michael Yeah. I mean, Im
having fun being with you too. Lets finish
these signs. Narrator While all this is going
on, Anthony walks over to his good friend
Trey. Anthony Trey, theres a beer in the fridge
with your name on it. Narrator Trey doesnt want
to drink a beer, but he doesnt want to look
like a jerk or offend Anthony.

Lesson 6 Assertiveness
Hangin at Anthonys SCENE 3
Narrator Victor and Alicia have been spending
most of the afternoon at Anthonys house working
on signs and talking. Out of the corner of his
eye, Victor sees Anthony and Teri, a star
volleyball player, walking toward them with a
couple of beers in their hands. Victor has
decided that he does not want to drink. How
should he handle this situation?
What is the problem for Victor? What are his
alternatives? Choose an appropriate (meets the
requirements of the three Rs) response and role
play the situation within your group. Group
members should take turns taking the parts of
Victor, Alicia, Anthony and Teri and after each
role play. After each enactment, discuss whether
the scene was realistic, and critique (point out
the strengths and weaknesses) of Victor and
Alicias assertiveness in their response. Did
they make eye contact when they spoke to Anthony
and Terri? Did they use an I statement? Did
they use a strong, clear voice? Did they give a
reason to back up their decision? Have each
person in your group practice the role of Victor
until he/she shows all the assertive behaviors in
his/her response.
36
Lesson 6 Assertiveness
Hangin at Anthonys SCENE 4
Narrator At about 545, a few minutes before
Anthonys parents are due to come home, Victor,
Alicia, and Terri see a police car pull up in
front of the house.
What is the problem? Pick one person in this
group and brainstorm some acceptable alternatives
for him/her for this situation. __________________

__________________________________________________
______________ __________________________________
_______________________________ _________________
________________________________________________
Which choice do you think is best? Why? What
will be the consequences (both positive and
negative) for the alternative you have
selected? DISCUSS WITH YOUR GROUP MEMBERS Think
about scenes one through four in this story. How
did the decisions made in scenes one and two by
each member of the group effect the events of
scenes three and four? How did the choices made
by Victor and Alicia early on in the story limit
their options at the end of the story? Do you
think the decisions made earlier in the story by
the other group members limited their choices too?
37
Lesson 7 Role Play Practice
FEEDBACK GUIDE FOR ROLE-PLAYING
The goal for role playing is to practice the
skills you have learned in the previous lessons.
Each person in your group should have the
opportunity to practice their assertiveness
skills in a realistic situation. Practice makes
perfect, and group members should help each other
practice by pointing what is done well and what
skills needs more practice. This is referred to
as critiquing (kri-teek-ing) one another. Use
the following questions as a guide to your
critique of the performances given by each of the
members of your group.
  • Was the refusal strategy stated clearly
  • Did they use a clear voice?
  • An I statement?
  • Did they offer a good reason for refusing?
  • Did they make eye contact?

How did the refusal strategy show respect of self
and others? In what ways was the refusal
strategy a responsible one? In what ways was the
refusal strategy a realistic one? What did the
speaker do to be assertive How did the student
explain why they decided to use the strategy they
did?
