This game illustrates different scenarios that involve elements of bullying among teens. It asks students to vote on whether the scene is cool or not and what are appropriate responses. A brief discussion between each scenario should occur.
Bullying is a major issue in high school! Many students are targeted for bullying by students who perceive any difference in peers as a cue to confront and harass. Comments and actions against students can have a lasting effect. Whether bullying takes the form of rumors, in-person threats, or cyberbullying, these critical issues need to be addressed for all people involved.
Included: Cool/ Not Cool cards, instructor scenarios
Concept: This game is an overview of bullying and the effects such behaviors can have. The instructor will read out a scenario and students hold up the Cool or Not Cool side of the card which reflects how they feel about the situation.
