CURRICULUM-BASED TRAINING AIDS TEACHERS
Under the law, the anti-bullying program must include lessons taught to students. The Foundation's curriculum-based training provides K-12 lessons educators should use in class. The training examines the many varieties of bullying, points out the differences between everyday conflict and bullying, emphasizes the importance of promoting a positive learning environment and dispels long-held myths.
MATERIALS FOR REGISTRANTS
Bar Foundation's Anti-Bullying Curriculum Guide, Bully-Busting Curriculum: Six Essential Lessons for Grades K-12, which complements the training and tailors each lesson to the elementary, middle and high school grade levels and offers valuable resources for educators; plus colorful posters that correspond to the lessons.
