A Powerful Bullying Video

If you haven’t seen this powerful poem-turned-video, you really should watch it now.  I’ve seen it pop up a number of times on Facebook and just now watched it.  I’ll most definitely show this to my students and discuss it with them.  Also, since so many of you read and connect with readers, I’m including a list of books that deal with the topic of bullying.  I know I’ll forget/miss books, so please leave more titles in the comments.

  1. Very powerful.

  2. Very powerful, indeed. I’m working on a list of books with our school counselor, those books needed by just the right kid at the right time. You have some fantastic ones to add, and we share several! I’ll share when we’ve got ours done too. Thanks for this.

I love comments!
