With rising levels of anxiety in children and an increasing atmosphere of intolerance, anti-bullying week feels particularly important this year.
There are a number of thought-provoking resources on Teachit English you could use with your classes to celebrate the differences in your students. What makes you unique? is a lovely discussion-based resource that explores what makes your students unique. All about me is another collaborative resource that helps students to get to know each other better.
Actionwork is calling for students to explore their creativity by entering their competition to demonstrate how bullying can be stopped. Based on the theme ‘Power for Good’, under 18s are asked to submit a story, poem, film or picture to be in with a chance of winning up to £300.
Finally, you could explore articles recently published that demonstrate the effect bullying – verbal, physical and cyber – can have on young people. NB Students may find some details in these articles upsetting.
