October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and schools around the country are helping kids confront the issue and find solutions. Here are some sites with great ideas:
STOMP Out Bullying
Kids Against Bullying (National Bullying Prevention Center)
Stop Bullying (U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services)
Cyberbullying Resource Center
Peace Helpers Become Classroom Problem Solvers (video from P.S. 24 in Brooklyn)
The Bully Project (activities based on the film Bully)
Dogs + Goggles = Doggles!
Goggles! introduces Archie, Peter’s best friend who takes center stage in Hi, Cat! and Pet Show! Ezra once said that of all his characters, Archie was his favorite. Quiet but ingenious, Archie was based on Ezra’s best friend, Martin Pope.
