The BullyFor this lesson, you should have first read the book “The Bully” by Paul Langan.

After having read the book, you should have a better understanding of the problems with bullying in school.

Your Task is to create a PSA (Public Service Announcement) using PhotoStory.  Your PSA will then be shown on the TV in the lobby of the school for everyone to see!

Please read ALL of the directions on this page before beginning your work.  The first day in the lab will consist of note-taking and saving pictures.  You will be given instructions on how to create your PSAs in your next visit to the computer lab.

  1. First, open The Bully Worksheet (clicking on the link opens a new window.  Click again on the words “The Bully Worksheet”, then click on “Open”). You will use this for taking notes as you do your research.
  2. Next, Go to Stop Bullying Now and click on the link on the left that says What is Bullying?  Read the article and answer question #1 on your worksheet.
  3. Now, click on Why Do Kids Bully?, read this page, and answer question #2 on your worksheet.
  4. Go to the Signs That You Bully page and take the quiz.  Then complete question #3 on your worksheet.
  5. Read about the Effects of Bullying and complete question #4 on your worksheet.
  6. Now go to What You Can Do, read the page, and click on all of the links on that page.  Complete Questions #5, #6 and #7 on your worksheet.
  7. Finally, go to Ask The Experts and go through all four links on this page.  You may take any additional notes you fell will be helpful to you on the bottom of the Bully Worksheet.
  8. Now, print out your worksheet so you have notes to use when creating your PhotoStory.

Now that you have all of the notes you need, you will begin to create your PhotoStory PSA.   The first thing you will need to do is find some pictures.  To make it easier, I have uploaded several bully-related images to this site.  You can get to these pictures by clicking here.

After you have saved all of the pictures that you want to use (you will NOT use all of the pictures), you will begin your PhotoStory.  You will be given directions on how to make the PhotoStory during your next visit to the computer lab.
