“A teacher, after socially integrating a diverse class, sees her efforts threatened when a child’s pencil case disappears and is thought to have been stolen.” Carol Brown: Teacher, with years of experience John Casey: Student missing his pencil case. Carol notices a pattern of her students accusing each other of theft. The pencil case was commonly shared by all the students. Carol’s class was comprised of 15 girls and 9 boys. Eight of those kids were from economically disadvantaged homes. Some students were dropped off in mercedes, while others were bused from lower class homes. Carol worked relentlessly to help her students have as many shared classroom experiences as possible. She made cooperative learning groups (of only 3 or 4 kids per group), and switched them up every two weeks. She created learning stations (“center time”) only a handful of children could be at at one time. Kids drew straws in order to decide who goes to what station, and they had center time twice a day. By thanksgiving, Carol’s classroom was thriving. Carol addresses her class about the stolen pencil case the next morning during circle time. The kids immediately establish that if you steal something, you go to jail. Carol asks what would happen if we all just took whatever we wanted, whenever we pleased? She lectures for a moment on trust, but doubts the kids really understand. John asks who took his case, and Carol realizes the issue was still unresolved.
