This past Thursday, we got started on our anti-bullying exercise. We divided the group into 2 smaller groups. Each group's assignment was to perform 2 scenes, one scene on something they enjoy in school and another scene on something they dislike. We watched each group perform their scenes and commented on what we observed. It was good to see students respond right away and to find commonalities in their school experiences. This video shows one performance. Next week, we will continue with our exercises and create some scenarios and challenge our students on how to respond in those situations.
Of course, we couldn't stay away from the kid's favorite song, "Let It Go", from the movie Frozen. Here is our rendition. It took a while for us to actually sing in unison.
