Malone Connection

The Many Faces of Bullying Prevention * peer-to-peer accountability * Grades 4-5 & 6-8 * Residency

Time Frames
During School Day
4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, Talented/Gifted


*Is an individual born a bully? *Can we identify and head off bullying before it happens? *Do you confront the bully, try to reason with the bully, avoid the bully, run from the bully or fight the bully? *What do you do when you cannot avoid a fight? *What is the meaning of personal accountability? *What is a value system and what does it have to do with bullying? Students (4th – 8th grade) engage in higher-level thinking and discussion that helps them better understand the Bullying dilemma. They experience how they can be part of the problem, and better yet, part of the solution. And, they workshop difficult scenarios that prepare them to be agents for change in their schools and communities. The residency occurs in 3 visits, scheduled throughout the school year - example: November, January & May. It is accompanied by an Accountability Manual that helps teachers facilitate conversations between artist visits. The objective is to apply consistent peer-to-peer pressure. ***Workshops are lead by a certified professional life coach.
