Help me give my students Rapping About Prevention assemblies, which addresses creating a positive, bully-free learning environment for our school.
I teach a fabulous group of first graders who are inspiring, motivating, and fun to teach. They are the future readers, writers, mathematicians, computer analysts, engineers, artists, and musicians of the world.
I teach in a large, diverse, K-8 high poverty school in an urban area of a large city in Pennsylvania that experiences crime.
Our school receives Title I funding and the entire school is eligible for free breakfast and lunch. The students who come to school eager to learn are from various living situations such as single parents, foster homes, homeless shelters, or extended family living. I am dedicated to meeting their needs daily, along with building their self-esteem and confidence.
I am a member of our school's Climate Committee. We would like to host Sterlen Barr for 2 assemblies as a culminating event during "No Name-Calling Week" in January 2019. It was a huge success last year and the students are begging for a repeat performance. We can't all fit in the auditorium at the same time, so we are requesting multiple assemblies.
Rapping About Prevention puts on an interactive and audience participatory performance using music, role-playing, drama, games, and story.
They provide their own sound equipment and the necessary items for the show. The children will get language development, science, theater, and hands-on learning from role models. The performers are very engaging and appeal to children of all ages. The show we will experience is called "Violence and Bullying Protection". This program addresses cyber-bullying, teasing and harmful playing.
The children will learn many strategies through math, science, technology, music and art to use in bullying situations. The teachers will extend upon the assemblies within their own classrooms afterward. They will create literacy and art projects in order to express what they have learned. The students will learn to be better upstanders, not bystanders. The students would never forget this exciting experience and it will help strengthen our positive school learning environment.
