To help students become aware of their actions, as well as the actions of others.
Typically, my school schedules Bully Free Awareness Week in March. However, during the 2011-2012 school year, our Positive Behavior Support Committee decided to combine Bully Free Awareness Week and No Name-Calling Awareness Week into "Random Acts of Kindness Week".
In addition to daily messages on the morning announcements, we have a door decorating contest and I allow teachers to sign-up for classroom counseling lessons (on the theme of bully free awareness).
I use lessons from my Making and Keeping Friends and Bullying classroom sessions. I also have an extra lesson if students have already seen my other options.
I was recently contacted by Sarah Fudin, the Social Media and Outreach Coordinator for the Masters of Arts in Teaching Program at the University of Southern California. She shared an infographic that provides a lot of information about bullying. Click here to see the entire blog post.
