Self-esteem activities and anti-bullying activities are fun with film clips (Printable & Digital) - Editable lesson plan, student handouts, PowerPoint slides, Google Doc, Google Slides and rubric for no prep distance learning or Google Classroom activities.

Teenagers, middle school students and high school students will love watching film clips from comedian, Bo Burnham's film, Eighth Grade, as a fun and lighthearted way to discuss self-esteem, self-acceptance and bullying.

After watching film clips, students discuss why "being yourself" can feel so hard, why peer-acceptance can feel so important, and how they can change their perspective and behavior to make it easier for themselves and others to be themselves.

Students also discuss how they can start viewing their flaws as strengths and how they can face their fears, keep perspective to remember that "it gets better" and that growing up is both scary and exciting for everyone.

This self-esteem lesson can be used as one complete lesson or 3 independent practice activities as students watch 2 film clips, read one nonfiction article and respond to 14 reading-response questions.

Includes 3-point reading response rubric for effortless grading.
