BULLYING: STOP THE PROBLEM!

 

Antonio Miguel Sánchez Bogas

 

 
INTRODUCTION

 

What is bullying? Bullying is when a boy or girl repeteadly abuses another boy or girl. This abuse is often physical, but bullying also happens when someone:

·         Lies to get you into trouble

·         Threats you and calls you names

·         Spreads rumours about you

·         Steals your belongings

·         Discriminates against you for any reason (race, gender, sexual orientation, etc.)

 

Bullying is a problem present at schools, but it usually remains unnoticed, as victims are generally afraid to talk about it. That’s why we must take action and do something to stop the problem!

 
 

 

TASK

 

You will have to design and create an awareness raising campaign addressed to teenagers. Your campaign will have one of the two following formats:

  • Video (to be used as a TV advert)
  • Poster (to place in a school)

 

Of course, your campaign should include relevant images and language in order to be as effective as possible.
 

 

 

PROCESS

 

You will work in groups of four and you will follow these steps:

 

Step 1 = Get some information on the problem of bullying.

Step 2 = Decide which type of bullying (physical, discrimination, etc) you are going to focus on. Does your decision change the format you would use?

 

 

Step 3 = Have a look at the following posters/videos to get some ideas, but try to be as original as possible. Also remember to make your poster/video effective for your target audience (teenagers).
