|A Guide to the Film BULLY: Fostering Empathy and Action in Schools||Toolkit & Training||Facing History and Ourselves||2012|
The film BULLY follows five stories of children and families who are affected deeply by bullying within the course of a school year. With intimate glimpses into homes, classrooms, cafeterias, and principals’ offices, the film offers insight into the lives of bullied, ridiculed children. Historically, seemingly small instances of labeling and ridicule have catastrophic consequences for the marginalized groups involved. This film brings those “small” instances into the spotlight creating a space to discuss the effects of bullying. The accompanying guide tells the personal stories of those bullied, and suggests that improving school climate takes fostering a reflective and engaging learning community. Features include: • Essential background information about bullying, including testimony and research findings from experts who have studied the effects of bullying on children, parents, and communities. • Facinghistory.org/safeschools provides additional resources about creating safe and caring school environments. • A “toolbox” of discussion strategies that will help facilitate honest, open dialogue about the film with groups of students and adults alike.

|Creating a Safe and Respectful Environment on Our Nation's School Buses||Toolkit & Training||Safe and Supportive Schools Technical Assistance Center||2011|
The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Safe and Healthy Students and the Safe and Supportive Schools Technical Assistance Center partnered with the National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) to coordinate a special event on Creating a Safe and Respectful Environment on Our Nation’s School Buses. These modules are intentionally designed to be offered as a series. The content of each module complements and completes the content contained in the other module. While Module 1 (See Something. Do Something. Intervening in Bullying Behavior) addresses how to identify and effectively intervene when bullying occurs (including tips on de-escalation), Module 2 (Creating a Supportive Bus Climate: Preventing Bullying) considers effective strategies to build a bus climate where bullying is less likely to occur. It’s our belief that bus drivers and students alike are best served when BOTH modules are covered with drivers within a short timeframe of one another.
