Coping with someone else’s anger is an advanced skill that requires first to identify that someone is feeling angry, think about what to do such as asking the person whether she/he feels like talking about it, listen to the person, asking whether she/he need help and/or come back later if she/he needs help, and finally take actions towards it.

Your classmate is angry because he got a bad grade on the spelling test.

You need to decide what the best thing to do for the situation is, for example: be a good listener, ask if the other person needs help or come back later if the person wants some space. If the person needs help decide how to help, remember it’s not alway necessary to help, look for social cues to decide what to do.
