High school cliques (AC presentation)
Transcript of High school cliques (AC presentation)
Preps - Popped collars and polo shirts are standard, and their grooming tends to be impeccable. Today, they tend to be the latest incarnation of the in-crowd: the popular kids. Sometimes they overlap with jocks, especially when it comes to sports. Maintaining the right image may even make them vulnerable.
Types of cliques There are a few types of cliques observable in most high schools:
Geeks - they often have superior knowledge or devotion to something, usually aren't fashion-conscious, may be introverted, and they often do well in school. What is a clique? In the social sciences, the word "clique" is used to describe a group of 2 to 12 persons who interact with each other more regularly and intense than others in the same setting.
Unlike a group, cliques are tight-knit circles that usually have a strict code of who can belong and how you’re supposed to act. While a group is centered on shared interests, values or beliefs, many cliques tend to focus on maintaining their status and popularity. Clique structure Types of cliques Surviving cliques Stay true to yourself: get in touch with your values and beliefs. Figure out what’s important to you.
Stay involved in activities you enjoy: don’t let anyone pressure you into giving things you love to do.
Keep an open mind: finding friends, even those not in a clique, whose values mesh with yours is key
Speak out: be willing to take a stand for what you know is right, especially when bullying or peer pressure is involved.
Have a mind of your own: be sensitive to others and don’t go along with the crowd if you don’t believe it’s right to do so. High school cliques Jocks - live for athletics, tend to be popular with many of their peers. Queen Bee – Leader: rules by “charisma, force, money, looks, will, & manipulation”
Sidekick – Lieutenant: invariably supports the Queen Bee’s opinions
Banker – Gossip: collects and employs information for her own gain until part of clique, then works for benefit of Queen Bee and Sidekick
Floater – Similar to a Liaison; closely associated with multiple cliques
Pleaser – Can be in or out of clique: immediately adopts all of the Queen Bee and Sidekick’s opinions, yet never gains their approval and is often treated with indifference by the Queen Bee.
Target – Outside of the clique; regularly excluded and humiliated Outsiders - may be socially challenged and just doesn't fit in, or they may be independent and feel no need to join any one group exclusively. They may become the target of bullying.
