Summary:
Since stereotyping and intolerance are so common, schools urgently need to instill in students a respect for differences and a tolerance of all people. Through a series of scenarios, students learn what it feels like to be different from others in a group, to see every person's intrinsic worth and dignity, and to understand how respect for others can make a critical difference in our world.

Unlike her friends, Michelle is a poor math student, but she excels at soccer. Her friends accept that they all have different abilities and interests.

Sari's Hindu religion instructs that she not eat meat. When she and her friends go to a fast food restaurant, she has the salad and they have burgers. They accept each other's uniqueness.

Mike accuses Steve of liking "gay" activities because he enjoys cooking. Rachel wants to be a test pilot. Her mother feels this is not an appropriate career for women. Rachel and Steve's determination to be treated respectfully and equally helps others see how vital it is to respect individual preferences.

These and other thought-provoking scenarios help students appreciate the importance of respecting differences.
