3. ———————————————

Girls should not be allowed to climb trees
1. —————————————
2. —————————————
3. —————————————

Now divide the class into two groups. Present to the rest of the class the opinion of Radha who thinks there is no harm in girls climbing trees and of her mother who thinks girls should not do this.

Answer:  In my opinion,

Girls should be able to climb trees if they wish

1. Girls should be given a chance to do whatever they wish to.

2. Stopping girls from climbing a tree is an example of the patriarchal society where girls are considered inferior to boys.

3. Change comes from small steps. Avoiding discrimination between boys and girls at small stages is the way to make huge societal changes.

“What makes me very angry is …”

Remember to listen with respect and without comment to each person as he/she speaks.
