In today’s school environment, students are facing new challenges. Besides keeping their grades up, balancing extracurriculars with home and social life, there are a growing number of students who are worried about being bullied.

Here at Storyboard That, we believe every student should have the right to a quality education, free of intimidation. We have found, and teachers have told us, that by using Storyboards to create role-playing scenarios students can better see the effects and characteristics of bullying. Through interactive lessons, you can help change student mindsets from “bullying is a problem” to “bullying is a problem, and I can do something about it”.

The Four Types of Bullying

Physical bullying

Physical bullying includes person to person contact. Examples of this include shoving, tripping, kicking, and hitting. Sometimes this can be difficult to distinguish from rough play, but if it is at inappropriate times or if not everyone involved is comfortable, it may be bullying.
