This is a Post Reading Activity, so make sure that you have finished reading the text with students.
Raise the following questions: What will Greg do when he enters the house? How will he approach his father?
Have a short discussion with the students to see what ideas they have.
Divide the class into two groups: group 1 will represent the father (Mr. Ridley) while group 2 represents Greg.
Hand out PATHWAYS’ negotiation preparation worksheet and have the students fill it in, focusing on the issue between the two characters: basketball vs. math and good grades.
Students from group 1 should do the preparation in small groups with other students who have the same role and the same for group 2.
Pair students up from group 1 and group 2, so they have a one-on-one session on what will happen next. How will this father-son relationship overcome this issue?
After they finish, have students present the outcome of their conversations.
Then, reflect on the whole activity using the Reflection questions.
