Show Your Support for Bullying Prevention by Wearing Orange for Unity Day, 10/9/13!
My students and I will be wearing orange to show my support for bullying prevention.
Wednesday, October 9, 2013 is Unity Day- National Bullying Prevention Day.
What a great opportunity to spread awareness, tolerance, and support.

This week I'll be reading and discussing the book Confessions of a Former Bully. It's a great story written from the perspective of a person who used to bully others. It describes bullying in a way that clearly identifies bullying as wrong without making bullies out to be villains. In previous years I've heard students come to the realization that they had participated in bullying. They had originally thought that bullying was only what we called severe/physical cases. This book gently explains why bullying happens and how students can handle being bullied. It also explains what students who bully can do to stop. I love how it takes a different perspective than most bullying books out there. Check it out!
