To begin, please visit these websites:
  1. The Bully Project - watch trailer

  2. NY Times interview - watch what the film maker says.

  3. CNN clip on film - watch

  4. Go to Do Something and do something. Scroll to the bottom of the page. Where it asks you what cause, select violence and bullying. Then fill out the rest of the form and do what it asks you to do! Also, give them your email address to get emails about helping others.

  5. In google docs, write a response to the questions below:
  • a. What does bullying mean to you?
