After being in middle school for the past two and a half years, I have noticed something. You’ve probably noticed it too.
My school isn’t like the stereotypical middle school which you see in movies and TV shows. There are cliques, or shall I say groups of friends with labels. I’m not sure whether this calls for other people, but I find it hard to make friends and work with several people from a certain clique all at once. They always ignore you, and share several inside jokes. But when it’s just you and one other person who doesn’t have their friends with them, it runs really smooth. You act as you were best friends.
I think that we all do this unknowingly. That’s why I have started to make more of an effort to include everyone in group work and other activities.
