Bully Blockers School Programs

Summary: Bully Blocker(TM) School Programs engage student minds, bodies and emotions to learn about what bullying is, why bullying is a problem for every student in a school and how every student can help block bullies in the classroom, at recess and in the halls. Kevin Strauss uses a combination of folktales, historical stories, real life accounts, role-playing and small group activities to help students understand how bullying works and how to protect themselves and their classmates from its effects.

Kevin tailors small group presentations to the needs of each school.

Residency presentations typically include partner, role-play and small group activities on topics like:
