Overview

Many states currently mandate character education, and school districts across the country need anti-bullying education programs to counter the rising tide of aggression and relational aggression that is the norm among many students. In fact, many school districts now require teachers to include lessons on bully prevention in their curriculum.

Real Life Bully Prevention For Real Kids addresses this pervasive problem by offering students hands-on activities. Teachers will want to use this book in their classrooms with their students as part of the school’s anti-bullying curriculum. As an added bonus, the activities reinforce English/language arts, social studies, and health education curricular goals. Counselors, therapists, and school administrators can also use the activities in large and small group instruction. Additionally, leaders of after-school programs and youth leadership programs, such as scouting, dramatics classes, and religious education classes, will find the activities helpful in addressing their bully prevention programs. Each activity contains a description, goals for children, and helpful hints for adults to guide their youngsters through the program.

This book is clearly written by someone with plenty of teaching and writing experience. Do I ever wish my grade school teachers had this book to draw upon decades ago. Real Life Bully Prevention for Real Kids is useful, well-crafted, and much-needed.
