For people onlist who saw the Heroes in the Hallway
video on youtube and wanted to use it in their classrooms, but couldn't because youtube is blocked... the original source is a company called spiritdesk and they have a link to their video on their site.. so you can use it in the classroom easily.
I'd also like to know about other information or tools on this topic. We've been experiencing a lot of bullying in our middle school lately... some of which has been fairly serious for our whole community. Materials to use in my classroom and perhaps to help improve awareness among our students of the impact of bullying, perhaps empower them to stand up to bullies... rethink their own behavior would be appreciated.
I'm wondering... if the best way to get something going is to have the students make their own video. I bet what really energized the schools involved in the bullying video above is being involved in it... Doing something creative, while having fun and getting lots of kids involved.. the message is sent while the kids are sending the message. I wonder if it would be okay for different schools to use the "template" of this video (which is simple to create) as a sort of viral video project... school after school creating their own version?
