*** Bullying Prevention Ideas for the Classroom ***

Attention TEACHERS!

If you're looking to introduce bullying as a topic of class discussion, check out the Stop Bullying Comic Challenge! These bullying prevention activities will give your students a new and creative way to think about an issue that affects all of them but that they're not always excited to talk about.

The activities cover a wide range of bullying scenarios, and it's up to students to show how they would resolve them.

At the end of March, an anthology featuring 20 favourite student comics will be created - a downloadable bullying prevention comic book, for students and by students!

To enter your class in the Comic Challenge:

- assign one of our bullying prevention activities

- add finished comics to your class gallery

- share your gallery with parents and other classrooms by making it publicly viewable
