Research and Bullying Project
Pair up with a partner for this two part project. Talk about the information and media (pictures and video) that you want to include for the online journal and the PowerPoint presentation. One person each take a part to complete. Both partners present the information.
You and your partner are going to play the role of an anti-bullying consultant company. You will target the following audiences: Bucks County Technical High School, the teenagers in Gone, and an association that is headed by Megan Meier’s parents who want to put an end to cyber-bullying.
You will need to provide an overview of bullying based on your research in the online journal and an action plan to prevent/stop/respond to bullying for the PowerPoint presentation. Your action plan should address the three types of bullying for the three different “clients.”
The online journal should include pictures and websites and the PowerPoint should be colorful and be graphically awesome with appropriate design and pictures.
The partnership that has the best presentation and presents well from all three classes will present to the anti-bullying initiative in the school.
