The Process

  1.   Your handbook is a collection of facts about bullying.  Be careful not to put you opinion in with the facts.  Remember that throughout this process you may not copy word for word what someone else has written.  You must put any information that you wish to add into your own words.  Your handbook should be checked for spelling, punctuation, etc. and needs to have some type of "creative flair". Remember that you are creating this handbook for fellow students.

       * Know what a bully is

       * Be able to recognize a bully

       * Know some useful ways to deal with a bully

       * Realize that they don't have to be bullied

       * Have an idea of some people they can go to if they are being bullied

       * Know how to react in crisis or emergency bully situations
