  1. You should correct the grammatical errors in this script (*se roba a su novia > le roba la novia a su hermano, está *al mar > está en la playa, etc.)
    Also, the ending is creepy. I’m sure students like the humor of the story, but do you really want them to think attacking someone over a love interest is a good idea?

    • Thank you for the comments! I’m curious about the ‘le roba’/’se roba’ point…I have always heard ‘se roba’ used in this case, and in doing some very brief research just now online, that’s all I have found as well. Are you a native speaker or are you able to show me a source that would support that? I want to correct this if I need to!! As far as the creepy ending goes…have you read the post on how story scripts work? (It’s under the ‘Teacher Training’ menu). The students do not ever see this story script. The underlined details (including the ending) are determined by the class; so they will not ever be the same as what you see in the script. If they were to suggest a detail like that, it is a great opportunity to discuss the topic. After all, aren’t love interests the source of about 95 percent of fights between middle school girls? You don’t have to use it, of course, but the mere fact that a kid would say it means that is on their minds and, to me, seems that it would be worth discussing!!
