is the perfect book for counselors, tech specialists, and classroom teachers. This unit provides teachers with resources for comprehension that also provide content for discussing the themes of bullying, cyber bullying, cliques, internet safety, and welcoming new students to school.
HOW CAN TEACHERS USE THIS UNIT FOR BULLY?
The unit is comprehension focused. It is designed in a before, during, and after format. Teachers can pick and choose the comprehension activities that match their standards. I also suggest including your Tech Specialist and Guidance Counselor as you work with this book. They can reinforce the themes too. The activities come prepped for Google Slides TM and in PDF.
