October is National Bullying Prevention Month and the week of October 19th-23rd is STAND UP for Others Week, which encourages everyone to stand up and say something when they witness bullying; research has shown that bullies back off when others stand up for victims.
Contrary to the belief that bullying is just a part of growng up, bullying can cause long lasting emotional and physical harm to victims. The prevalence of social media has presented bullies with many new ways to victimize others. These books and teaching resouces from the BloomBoard Marketplace contain important information about cyber bullying, supporting victims, and preventing bullying in the first place.
To prepare you with the necessary tools to combat bullying in your classroom, we've put together a collection of resources including videos, articles, and books.
