                                                                                Dealing with Aggression at School

Main Idea (Message):

School is the place where young people get their knowledge of life, of justice and of dignity, of human qualities and noble behavior. There is no place for violence and cruelty in the school. Years of study at school are the best time to learn empathy and forgiveness, unity and cooperation. Only joint efforts of the students and the teachers can make it happen.

Script for Discussion:


Characters: Stefan, Martin, Peter, Marcus, Christina, Julia

Setting: Classroom


The lesson is over. Martin is packing his books. Christina and Julia approach him.

Christina: You know all of Goethe by heart! I am so impressed!

Julia: We've never had a real poet in our class!

Martin: I don't think I can consider myself a real poet. The responsibility is too high.

Julia: My birthday is soon. Will you compose a poem for me?

Martin: Sure, ladies! “The spirits of inspiration are descending down from the Heaven

of Beauty… and they fill the hearts of the loving ones”…

Christina: Cool!

Julia: Ok, see you later!

Girls leave; Stefan approaches Martin and grabs one of his notebooks. Peter comes close.

Stefan: Poems. “Have you ever thought of the fate of a linden-tree leaf?”

Martin: Give it back! How you dare?

Martin tries to get the book; Stefan doesn't give it to him.

Stefan: “Come to the old pond in the night and ask the surface of water…”

Martin: Stop it! Give me my notebook!

Stefan throws the notebook to Peter.

Martin: Guys, what are you doing? What's going on?

Peter: You don't understand? How come? You are so clever.

Stefan: He definitely has a problem with his head.

Martin: What do you want me to understand?

Marcus: This is your first day in this school and you are already flirting with the two

most popular girls in our class.

Martin: What?

Peter: He definitely has a problem with his ears.

Stefan: “Ask how it feels to ride a little ships of a linden-tree leaves…”

Martin: Please!

Martin tries to get his notebook, Peter pushes him in the back, Martin drops his glasses. Peter

pushes him again and Martin steps on his glasses. Crack!

Martin: My glasses!

He sits and finds his glasses. Teacher enters.

Teacher: What's going on here? Marcus? I warned you many times! You will be expelled

from school. Enough misbehaving! Martin? Is it your name? Did they hit you? Did they

break your glasses? 


Martin: I did it myself. I stepped on my glasses.

Teacher: Is that right? Are you ok? Well. Be careful, Marcus. (Leaves).

Martin picks up his broken glasses.

Peter: Now he definitely has problems with his eyes.

Marcus: Shut up you, idiot!

Marcus takes Martin's notebook and gives it to Martin.

Dictionary of Russian language by S.Kuznetsov


Mischief is the first step towards the vice.

First it becomes a habit, and then a passion.

And then it pulls you to the evil with a total power,

And never lets you free.

I. Krylov (1769-1844), Russian poet


To leave a crime without a punishment means to become its complicit.

P. Crebillon (1764-1762), French dramatist


The poverty is the mother of crime and the shallow mind is its father.

J.La Bruyere (1645-1696), French writer


Even the most innocent occupation can be made a crime by people with no morals.

J. Moliere (1622-1673), French dramatist and actor


Crime can go unpunished sometimes, but it will never let you live in peace.

Seneca (4B.C.-65A.C.), Roman writer and philosopher



There are up to 30 thousands of youth criminal groups inRussia. Youth crime has grown almost twice in the last 5 years. Number of crimes committed by girls grew up to 57%. 27% of offenders are younger than 14 years of age.

“The Komsomol Truth”, 26th February, 2000



Peacekeeping, patience, justice, perseverance, courage.



1. Discuss this topic with your friends, parents and other relatives.

2. Think how you would behave in the presence of the aggressive people.

3. Help someone in your school who needs protection.



Keep the peace in school, in your home, outside and everywhere you go. Where the peace is – there are love, respect and dignity. Where the aggression is – there are cruelty and calamities. What you do makes your personality. Be kind and fair person yourself, and help others to be.


Interethnic Unity 

Main Idea

All nations on the planet have equal rights to live and prosper. All peoples, their culture, religion, language and traditions are worthy of respect. No one should put his nation above others. Peace on Earth, the tranquility and prosperity of its peoples depend not only on the mutual respect of all nations, but on the respect of each individual. Each nation has its own hardships and tests, and the challenge of each one is to overcome these challenges in a dignified way. The goal of the existence of humans and nations on Earth is to help the development of each other.

Respect other cultures and their representatives, their way of life, their customs, their food and their art.
