Anti Bullying 101

Bullying has become epidemic in our schools, and no matter how you slice it, this behavior has gotten out of hand. Teachers, administrators, and parents are all looking to something that will just make the problem go away. There is not one program or intervention that will stop bullying. It takes a concerted effort of teachers, administrators, parents, and students to help create a climate of respect and responsibility. Successful schools that have really made a difference use data-driven programs and remain consistent in their efforts day after day and year after year. Anti-Bullying 101 is designed to support whatever program your school is using and to provide a resource for teachers to call upon when the going gets tough. Some of the tips might surprise you. They not only address bullying but also provide ways to build positive relationships, improve the attitude of your students, and provide some life lessons that we all can learn from. So read on: Anti-Bullying 101 will prove to be the supplement that you and your school need to help stop bullying. It is very basic and very easy—use them in school, use them with your own children, and apply them in life.

Macbeth, Act 1 (Adapted)

Macbeth, Act 1 (Adapted)

Macbeth - A specially adapted version of Macbeth - Act 1 and activities. I wanted to adapt Macbeth so that Special Ed students could study - and enjoy the play. (I'm on a quest to get the classics into special ed classrooms). I have kept the plot, character motivation, scenes etc - and even a bit of rhyme, but it is in simplified language. Because of this, the resource is also ideal for ANY student studying the play as it simplifies the plot so they can understand what's happening and compare it with the difficult to read Elizabethan original. It will be easier for them to grasp what happens in each scene then as the language is always tricky for anyone reading the play. It's also suitable for adult literacy classes and ESOL classes. This is a complete unit of study of Act 1. (The rest of the acts will follow soon). This resource includes - * 27 power point slides (illustrated) with the adapted text of Macbeth. * 35 short answer question quiz, covering all 7 scenes of act 1 (multiple choice, true/false, missing word). * Answer sheet. * Class discussion sheet - Consequence and conscience, further discussion questions, highlighting activity. * Activity sheet - Write a letter. * Activity sheet - Draw a poster. * Handout - PDF of presentation slides to print off (I print it off in grey scale). * Role play activity. * Peer performance record sheet. * Self evaluation sheet. * Handout - recap of Act 1 - Some questions to think about.

The Real 3R's: Respect, Responsibility, and Resilience

The Real 3R's: Respect, Responsibility, and Resilience

These are not your garden variety lesson plans. They were written to include one plan for each of the 3R’s with the inclusion of suggestions, links, and podcasts that the reader can click on to listen to. If you purchase a hard copy of the book I have included the link where applicable so it can be copied into your browser. I have gone very narrow and very deep and tried to really hit a home run with the activities. I also included character qualities associated with each one of the 3R’s and in the area of resiliency have included some activities and suggestions that are related to these qualities that can be used in a classroom, or in a home. There is also included a bonus course at the end of the book as well.
