1 Bullying WebQuest Introduction It is a sad time at our school. Bullying has become a problem and is starting to affect everyone in school. Some students bully others with their words and actions. Naturally, some students are the victims of the bullies. The remaining students witness the bullying, and feel helpless to do anything about it. Nobody feels safe, and no one seems to be able to enjoy school anymore. Finally, you decide, it's time to take matters into your own hands and do something about it.

2 TASK The Time to Act is Now! You are going to learn more about bullying in hopes of finding a solution to the problem. You will explore different websites to find all the information you can. You'll also think about your own experiences. Once you've gathered your information, the best thing to do with it is share it. You'll be creating your own anti-bullying poster, and you'll be writing and performing a short skit with other members of your class. Through public awareness, you hope to solve the problem.

Perhaps you've learned some ways that you can stand up to bullies, or help your friends stand up to them. Your skit or poster may lead someone to look at bullying in a different way. You have the knowledge, now it's time to apply that knowledge and help make your school and community a better place. IntroductionTaskProcessResourcesConclusionTeacher NotesEvaluation

9 TEACHER NOTES I found this webquest on google. It is a part of New Zealand’s official website on bullying. I changed it to fit my urban, middle school environment. Since the North Philadelphia middle school I work in has a great deal of issues around bullying, I wanted something that was simple, easily adaptable, and user friendly. I believe I found it with this webquest. This webquest can be used for grades 3 through 8 with little, if any, adaptation.
