6th and 7th graders analyzed bullying episodes in literature looking for reasons why people bully other people and the coping strategies used by victims. They read articles printed out from online databases and identified 3 facts, 2 opinions, and asked 1 question. Then they created their own bullying scenarios using Toondoo. We had some problems with saving them: accounts were permeable and some students’ comics showed up saved on another’s account, and others lost them even though they saved them correctly. I wish I had an answer for these technical problems.
