Problem and Solution

  1. 1. Problem and Solution Juan’s school is having tryouts for the lead in the school play. Juan loves to act and really wants the lead part. The school is even doing a play that Juan really loves. Yet, Juan gets really nervous when speaking in front of a lot of people. He feels uncomfortable standing in front of people and he even gets scared when answering a question in class. Juan went home and asked his mother about his problem. She suggested that he practice his lines in front of the family to help him feel more comfortable. After a few nights of practicing in front of his parents and his sister, Juan still didn’t feel better about performing in front of his classmates. Next, Juan’s teacher suggested that he try to answer more questions in class even though he was scared. At first it was really hard, but after a few days Juan started to feel a little better about speaking in front of his classmates. Yet, Juan was still scared to act in front of the whole school. On the day of the tryouts, Juan decided to try an idea of this own. He decided to look at only one person in the audience. During his audition, he looked at his favorite teacher and pretended like she was the only person in the room. Amazingly, Juan felt less nervous and performed his best. The next morning at school the announcements came on. The principal announced the parts for the play. He said Juan’s name for the lead part in the play! Juan was very proud of himself for doing something so difficult.
