In our society, where emerging technologies unite and divide us in new ways, bullying is reaching epidemic proportions. The Bully-Go-Round shows teachers and students powerful and positive ways to connect, react and respond to stories and information that lead to a better understanding of the issues around bullying.
The book illustrates the complexity of the bullying cycle and explores the role of those involved: the bully, the bullied and the bystander.

Activities include
