Anti Bullying - How to Stamp Out Bullying at School & In the Classroom
Play-by-Play Anti-Bullying Scenarios - With a comic glimpse into homes and classrooms this program uses comedy clips to address bullying in a way that captivates students and shows them how they can change their behavior. It defines the four forms of bullying - physical, verbal, exclusion and online and encourages bystanders to be upstanders and challenges students to take a stand against hate, racism and intolerance. Students will learn how much damage they can do to others and themselves through the misuse of social media. They will discover that much of what they put online is permanent and that cyber bullying is a prosecutable offense. It takes a look at the different roles of the victim, bully and bystander, along with actual ways the bystander can intervene and how the victim can stop being a victim. Deltano challenges the youth and adults in the audience to contemplate how they view each another. The scene "Labels Lie" is about acceptance. It shows students how to make new friends by reaching out and encourages students to stop judging each another by appearance, speech, or economic status. It talks about trash throwing and trash catching, haters and hate catching, bullies and bystanders and takes the unusual approach of addressing the mindset of the bully as well as those being bullied.
