Description

Anti-bullying Curriculum - This activity is a multipurpose approach to reinforce understanding of English Language Arts: Story Elements (characters, setting, plot) and research the problems related to bullying. Students will design a social media campaign to keep their school campus informed about the topic of bullying throughout the school year. Options include designing posters, skits, videos, and short stories. This is an especially fun unit if your school has fully embraced technology, possibly adopting iPads or laptops with video capabilities, and a campus social media or video network. Graphic organizers are included to help students brainstorm slogans, storyboards, character development, setting, and plot sequencing. Students will also learn facts about bullying, how to recognize bullying, and how to empower themselves when confronted with a bullying situation.

The lesson includes:
*Activity Guide
*Brainstorming Slogans Printable
*Brainstorming Storyboard Printable
*Create a Character Graphic Organizer
*Create a Setting Graphic Organizer
*Create a Plot Graphic Organizer

Common Core aligned for English Language Arts in the categories of Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Anchor Standards. Although this unit is aligned with Language Arts standards, the emphasis is on anti-bullying education and the creative use of multimedia. This could easily be used in English classes to incorporate the anti-bullying message without distracting from subject area goals.

The activity uses www.stopbullying.gov which coordinates closely with the Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention Steering Committee, an interagency effort led by the Department of Education. The sites provide one-stop access to U.S. Government information on bullying topics.

If you have already purchased this larger unit, you don't need to purchase The Anti-Bullying Campus as it is included.
