Bullying

West Virginia LearningMedia brings important lessons into the classroom.  http://wv.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/midlit11-soc-splbully/bullying/ In this self-paced literacy lesson, students watch documentary videos about bullying and read informational text about how bullying may affect the function of a democratic society. Students develop literacy skills as they explore a social studies focus on the role of personal freedom, particularly freedom of speech, and how bullying limits such personal freedom.

Bullying and harassment in schools was the topic of discussion during the Joint Standing Committee on Education yesterday.

Miracle Boy, a film about a young boy who is injured in a farming accident and then bullied by other boys, took home Best Short film at the West Virginia Filmmaker’s Festival this past weekend.  Producer Jason Brown said he will always be a West Virginia filmmaker despite his Georgia address. The movie  was shot in Greenbrier County.
