Let’s spread the word that bullying is wrong by incorporating the prompts of Depth and Complexity and Content Imperatives! This pack (part of a much larger bundle) offers meaningful and engaging activities to get your kids communicating, writing, creating, and thinking! Get your students to clearly understand the impact bullying can have on its victims as well as others involved. Your students will also write about how to make their school bully free, and use cooperative learning structures to discuss different elements of bullying. Your kids will have the opportunity to design an anti-bullying ribbon, pennant, and t-shirt using the Depth and Complexity icons. Additionally, students will analyze different situations to figure out whether or not bullying was involved, turn negative thoughts into positive ones, and even work with a small group to create a presentation on a particular bullying behavior.
Never used Depth and Complexity icons or frames in your classroom? No problem! None of your students are identified as GATE? Still not a problem! This packet is for all students and detailed directions are included for each page. I’ve used frames and the prompts of Depth and Complexity with all of my students (GATE or not), and they really enjoy it!
This pack includes:
+ What Can You Do to Make Your School Bully Free Writing Activity: Students will write about what they can do to make their school bully free and how one person can change another person’s life.
+ Mix-Pair-Share Depth and Complexity Style Bullying Activity: Students will get the chance to mix around the room and discuss bullying using the prompts of Depth and Complexity.
+ Design Your Own Bullying Depth and Complexity T-Shirt: Students use icons to illustrate and write about standing up to bullying!
+ Depth and Complexity and Content Imperative Chart with a short summary of each icon (including new prompts) to use for each activity
+ Anti Bullying Pennant: Kids can design their very own pennant to banish bullying!
+ Differing Depths: Teach what it means to be different, and why it’s okay! Your class will also brainstorm other words to use instead of “weird.”
+ Be an Icon, Not a Bully: Students get to create 3 different awards for 3 classmates for doing something positive or for having special qualities, and then meet with each classmate to read what they wrote.
+ Is it Bullying? After reading 6 different scenarios, kids will have to decide whether each situation describes bullying or not bullying.
+ Spread Kindness/Fill 'Em with Kindness- 2 different activities in which students will spread kindness to others. One of the activities asks students to write their names inside the heart and rotate around the class to spread positivity to each person's heart. Students will write something kind in their classmates' hearts.
+Banish Bullying...Yourself: Kiddos will turn negative thoughts into positive ones.
+The Impact of Bullying: After reading about two bullying victims, students will use the Depth and Complexity icons to explain the impact bullying is having on each victim.
+ Design your very own ribbon for others to wear using the icons. Create a contest in your room for the best slogan/motto/design, etc.
+ Bullying is Complex: Assign small groups a bullying behavior (included in packet) and each group will answer the questions created with prompts of Depth and Complexity and prepare a creative presentation about the bullying behavior.
+ 2 “Suggestions for Use” pages with detailed explanations of how I use these activities in the classroom as well as information on the cooperative learning structures included
