Educational Assitant

posted by .

As an Educational Assistant you are leading a group converstation with 12 grade 4 students. They are having a discussion about the story that they have just read about a boy who has stolen a toy from a local corner store. The conversation has turned to the topic of theft, and Collette a student raises her hand to make a comment. You call her name and she says " That boy in the story must have come from X country my dad says everybody from that country steals"

How would you rephrase the problematic speech to be more acceptable?

Can You give any suggestions to help me?

    I'd try to find something in the story that would indicate that the boy was not from X country.

    If that doesn't work, you could point out that many small children steal things because they don't know any better.

    It's not a good practice to come out and tell a child that her father is wrong.

    Thanks Ms. Sue
    Do you think that this is appropriate?
    Maybe some of the people in country X do steal, but we cant judge the boy because we don't know where he is from?
