I was at a meeting today and discovered that this is bullying awareness week.
One of my colleagues at the meeting gave a quick tour of a great site with lots of ideas for teachers to use with their students to explore this topic.
Visit the website at: http://www.bullyingawarenessweek.org/. This site is a creation of the developers of cyberbullying.ca. The theme is Stand Up to Bullying and there are activities for every day of the week.
I gather that the Langley School District in British Columbia has organized challenges for its schools to compete with one another over the week. Good for them!
Having browsed through a number of the activities, I can see that all of them can be used at other times in the year, even if you don’t participate this week.
