Unit 3: Embracing Differences & Diversity Lesson 2
Lesson 2: Responding to Provocative Targets

• When should someone be expected to conform to society?
• When should society accept differences in others?
In this lesson, students learn how to respond to victims of bullying who are provocative targets.
