FC: Speak Inquiry Project Hope Huggins Cliques
1: A clique is an exclusive group of people who share interests, views, purposes, patterns of behavior, or ethnicity. They usually have their own style of clothing.
3: Questions About Cliques | What is the reason for making a clique? I think the reason for making a clique is so people know who to hang out with and they will know to hang out with the people that are like them. | Why do cliques have leaders? Some cliques do not have leaders but I think the reason why is because some of them have been in that certain clique for quite awhile and they know what goes on in the clique. | Where are cliques at? Cliques are everywhere. They are at school, work, sports teams, etc. | Do cliques ruin friendships? In some cases they do ruin friendships because people want to become "cooler" and they want to be popular so they stop talking to their real friends and hang out with the other cliques.
4: The Not-So-Shocking Truth About Cliques | Here a clique, there a clique. Everywhere you look, it seems, friends cluster into groups that exclude other teens. For Lisa Auster-Gussman, 16, a student at Lancaster Country Day School in Lancaster, Pa., hanging out with a clique is old news. While in middle school, she and five friends became so close that others dubbed them "the Six-Pack" and complained about being excluded.
5: "The principal did everything in his power to stop us from being friends," she recalls. "He tried assigning seats at lunch and called our parents in to talk about how many of the girls in our grade were feeling left out." The principal's efforts failed, but Lisa still doesn't see her bunch of buddies as causing a problem. She says cliques are a routine part of life. "The group of girls who talked to the principal was a clique too," she adds. "If I wanted to go over to their lunch table, it would have been just as awkward as if one of them came and sat down at ours." | Cliques!
