For 6th graders, right now this Unit 3 is talking about a school-related topic and how to solve it.
I have the oportunity to check out new publisher books for the Pnieb program (I don’t have in my school, sniff sniff) and I realized that at least 3 publisher aproached this project by bullying.
Since I didn’t want to get involved in copyright issues, I had to get creative soooo I found this page full of anti-bullying songs. I choose
- “Mean” by Taylor Swift
- “Welcome to my Life” by Simple plan
- “F* perfect” by Pink
- “Sing” by Chemical Romance (Glee Version – it’s just sounds better)
- “Don’t laugh at me” by Baby Jay
Result of this songs with my students: well, they liked the songs but I only used 3, it was maybe a bit too much in one class, next time one per class.
Also there is great information at Stop Bullying
