Before you watch the video below, find a friend and discuss these questions:
- Why do people get bullied?
- At our school, how much are people evaluated based on their choices of clothing or activities? Do people get harassed or picked on for wearing particular styles or adopting particular hobbies? Why?
- Describe the characteristics of someone who wants to be or is trying to be “different.” How do you respond when you encounter a person who is trying to develop his or her own personal style? Do you respect this desire?
Watch the following video carefully. As you watch, try to identify these categories: victim(s), bully(ies), bystander(s), hero(es).
