Well if I was one of Jose three student I would feel uncomfortable but I would try not to show it. I'm pretty sure they and everyone would feel that way because it is like going up to an ugly person and saying ohh you re extremely ugly bt you wouldn't say that you probably wouldn't say anything just act normal like an August case you would TRY to stre at him and make him feel even worst than he already is.. So yes I do think that those kids felt uncomfortable around him and if I was asked to take him on a tour guide sadly i would say no because I know my self and I know that I would feel very uncomfortable and would probably by accident make a face and make the person feel bad...
I think the students that take August on the tour will already know his condition, but still not help looking at him a certain way, even if they don't mean too. It's just that, especially young kids, judge on appearances. I know that these kids might not, but kinda can't help it. It's tough. . . I believe that I would try to get to know him and look past disabilities, but y'know I think I ( and everyone else ) might double glance and it might be awkward befor e you get used to it.
I think that at first the students definatly were not comfortable with August. Their body language showed that they were uncomfortable because they were avoiding eye contact with August. If I was asked to be a "tour guide" for August I would feel a little bit intimidated. I would be a bit frightened to be asked to create a tour with him because I would not know what to expect. Also a part of me would be excited because then I would be able to meet someone who is different not just a regular old person. It would be exciting to make someone feel good about themselves and then show them that they can be treated like normal people. I would be responsible for making that person see that there is nothing to be afraid of, that the kids will accept him for being different
I think they will feel uncomfortable about him because they have never seem someone like him. I would try not to look at his face, or speak about it so he doesn't feel embarrassed. I might feel uncomfortable, but I would try not to show it.
I do not think that the 3 students will be comfortable around August. We haven't learned a lot about their personalitys yet bu when they greeted him, they all did meager hand-shakes or waves and they all looked really uncomfortable around him. But since we don't know about thier personality's, we can't make an asumtion. I don't know how I would feel if I were asked to do a tour for someone like August. I have never been in a situation like that before, but if I were I would probably do the same thing that they did.
I don't think that the 3 students will be comfortable around August at certain times because they kind of got set up about Mr. Tooshmen. If, I were August I would feel the same way and wonder if they were really my friends or if they were just forced to be.
I think that once they really get to know him then they will be comfortable around him like his friend christopher!
I think that the three students from the school might not be nice to him. They might barely even talk to him. Based on the way they reacted to him at his first impression, I think they will be mean or be friendly because of his condition. They could even end up being his best friends. That is what I think about the students.
I would feel fantastic to give a school tour to a kid like August. One reason I would feel good about doing that is because the teachers trust me to make the boy feel welcome. That is important to me because the teachers believe that I will make the right decisions, and be kind to the boy. I would treat him like everyone else. That will make the boy feel real good and it will show him that he fits in with everybody around him. The last reason is people/teachers/parents, will have a good impression of me, and the student would too.
I honestly think they will not that is just the way kids are. There not gonna be able to help being uncomfortable and I would be fine with helping someone like that out
I think that the three students that took August for a tour wouldn't be comfortable around him at first but then they will get used to him. But, I think that they will turn out to be very nice kids and they will want to help August in his first year of school. If I was asked to give a tour for TBS to a student like August I think that I would do it because I would want to try to make that student feel welcome at TBS and feel like they wont be made fun of. I would also want to be that persons tour guide because I know that I wouldn't make a face or try to look away because of what they look like. One more thing that I would like to add is that I would feel better If I gave that person a tour because I would feel like that if someone else did the tour then they wouldn't do as good of a job as me trying to make that person feel like they wouldn't be made fun of. Its not because I'm doubting anyone its just that I would be worried because I wouldn't want that person to feel like they would be made fun of at our school so I would want them to really like TBS if I was giving a tour to a student like August.
At first, I think that the 3 students will not be comfortable at first. Though, through out the year, they will get more and more used to him. If I were to give August a tour, i don't think that I would be 100% comfortable. I would probably want to act like I'm comfortable though. This is because I'm not used to seeing people who look like August do it would take some time to adjust.
I do not think that the three students will comfortable around August. It does not mean that they will not try but it will be difficult. For anyone it is hard meeting someone new but, for someone that has been throughout what August has been through it is even harder. I feel fine doing a tour for someone like August because he is just like everyone else. We are all the same so why can't we always act like that.
I feel like some of the people who gave August the tour are somewhat comfortable around him it's just a little awkward. First of all they don't know each other very well, so they don't know what they have in common and it's hard to make conversation. Second, when people are different from them they aren't always the nicest and August, as we know is a little different. Put them together and you have a pretty awkward situation. If I was asked to give a tour guide to a student like August I would say yes but be a little nervous, but at the end I think we would be good friends.
I think that the three kids are going to feel awkward talking to him and not know what to say to him. Also I think that the kids are going to feel that they don't know how to make conversation withAugust because they are gonna think he's not normal! But, if I were one of those kids I would have a lot of sympathy for August because he has probably been made fun of a lot because of his face and how he's not normal.
For me I would be happy because there asking me to do something helpful mostly meaning that they trust me. It might be awkward if you didn't know who you where doing it for or if the person who asked you described the person your touring wrong. But I wouldn't make fun of that person or laugh at him. Because there are just normal people they just look a bit different and theres nothing wrong with that. So yay I would be honored to and even try to make friends with August ( Augy) or whoever it may be.
I Don't think the students will be comfortable around him because they dident look at his face and when the said hi they said it quickly.But I think the students will warm up to him and like him.
I think that the three students that meet August are going to have different feelings. The two boys came and shook August's hand but then he just looked down really quickly so did not really have to look at him. But I do not think that they were trying to be mean, because I am sure that they were nice kids that came to see August. The girl just waved at August which was kind of a little mean that she does not really like to touch him but she made eye contact with him which was very nice. If I was asked to tour this new kid around school I think that I would be a little hesitant but I would not want to be mean.
