 Bullying project.

 One child in four is bullied at school. One in five admit bullying. Recently, a government report on school shootings showed that the only common trait among student shooters was that they all have a long history of being bullied. In schools where fear and anxiety are the norm, students can't learn and achieve.

 As an extension activity for the short story “The Moose and the Sparrow” your group will create a presentation based on the concept of BULLYING.

 Your presentation will be oral in nature and may use any combination of mediums you choose.  Each member must participate in the actual presentation or else risk receiving zero for a grade. 

 

Your presentation must include, but is certainly not limited to, the following:

 Identify various types of bullying, both direct and indirect.

Increase awareness of bullying styles and its presence in schools.

Develop awareness of the consequences of bullying, both personally and socially.

Review research findings relating to the causes and effects of bullying.

  

Each member of the group will receive an individual mark based on effort, participation and quality. 

Time of presentation = 15-30 Minutes
