Fight Harassment, End Name-calling, Create Positive Learning Communities

According to the old adage, sticks and stones can break your bones; in the real world, name-calling and verbal harassment can be just as hurtful to young students. With this in mind, NAESP is joining the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) in supporting No Name-Calling Week, an annual week of educational activities whose purpose is to end name-calling of all kinds in U.S. schools and communities. This year’s No Name-Calling Week takes place Jan. 25-29.
Inspired by the popular young-adult novel The Misfits, in which four seventh-grade friends bond together to eradicate name-calling at their middle school, No Name-Calling Week provides educators with an opportunity to draw attention to this lingering problem and implement policies that will eradicate verbal harassment of all sorts. NAESP has developed an elementary school lesson plan that can be used by principals and teachers to transform their schools and classrooms into name-calling-free environments. Students in grades K-5 still have time to participate in the 2010 Creative Expression Contest. Submissions, which are due Feb. 26, can take the form of essays, poems, original music, original artwork, or any other method of creative expression that incorporates the student’s personal experiences, observations, and feelings about name-calling and verbal bullying.
Please join NAESP and GLSEN in working to bring attention to this problem and end name-calling and verbal harassment. Doing so will make our education system more productive and our communities more close-knit.

My school is coordinating and planning three days of Challenge Day in the beginning of February. The three day event incorporates harrassment and creates an environment in which everyone feels as they belong. In the past students have apologized to one another in fron to the whole group.

Currently, my school incorporates these types of lessons into our guidance counselor PATHS lessons and our all school Kindness campaign. However I think that the attached lesson plan would be a great way to incorporate and reinforce the kindness into any classroom! I am looking forward to using this in my classroom and sharing it with my colleagues.
