Explore the roots of bullying, examine the choices people make when bullying occurs, and discover strategies and resources to prevent and stop bullying in schools at this all-day conference, hosted at The Cambridge School of Weston
Conference participants will view excerpts of the acclaimed documentary, BULLY, a compelling and tragic portrait of the consequences of bullying in our society. Break-out sessions include cyberbullying, using curriculum to counter bullying, and strategies for creating positive school culture.
Schools are encouraged to come in teams (that could include administrators, teachers, parents, and students).
For over 36 years, Facing History and Ourselves has helped teachers and students recognize the impact of their voices and choices in creating or perpetuating a culture that supports all students. These core principles are relevant whether your school is confronting issues of cyber-bullying, religious-based harassment, or homophobia.
