Black Out Bullying: Bully Field Trip

My students need to see the documentary "Bully" to further the conversations teachers have started about the causes, impact, and resolution of bullying in our own school.

My Students

Do you remember what middle school felt like? Do you remember the drama, the tension, and the bullying? These days, possibilities for bullying have multiplied with the ascendancy of technology and social media that create a world adults can rarely monitor and students don't fully understand.

My students are like any other 7th graders in America - they have friends, frenemies, and "enemies" with complex and fluctuating interactions.

They manage their relationships in myriad ways, and like all teenagers, they often make mistakes that can seriously hurt others and themselves. Over the past several months students have been hospitalized or arrested as a consequence of bullying, and teachers and parents have worked to build a dialogue about the all-too-real impact of kids' choices.

My Project

Watching the movie "Bully" will further my team's goal to help our 7th graders understand what bullying is, the forms it can take, how it affects people and how it can be stopped. In addition to the emotional impact of the movie, we will lead pre and post-screening discussion groups to allow students to think and share their reflections.

This project will be a large step in educating teenagers about the importance of fully respecting each other.

It will help the 7th grade team as we teach our students to become better people and leaders of the other 1,000 students in our school.
