Thanks again to the Austin ADL for coming out on Friday to lead us in their A World of Difference training. As an additional support, they’ve shared the following online resources with us:

Current Events Classroom lessons are timely and assist in teaching about news topics
Shane Koyczan was bullied as a child. He took the pain that haunted him for all these years and put it into an amazing video.
Kids who are bullying victims are more than twice as likely to have suicidal thoughts and more than two and a half times as likely to attempt suicide as kids who aren’t. Suicide is the third-biggest killer of young people in the United States. Girls are at higher risk.
If you’d like to see more of Shane’s work, you can Like him on Facebook. You canbuy the graphic novel and the album here. To learn more about how to stop bullying, check out StopBullying.gov.
