As the leading provider of educational school assemblies both in the midwest and nationwide, Mobile Ed has been asked for years to please offer some kind of anti bullying school assembly program. We are now proud to comply with that request.
Mobile Ed is pleased to announce, new for 2011-2012, our first anti bullying school assembly, Stronger Than A Bully!
There is no doubt that a need exists in schools for assistance in this area. Bullying leads to depression, low self esteem, health problems, poor grades and even suicidal thoughts. Bullying creates an environment where students have trouble learning, feel insecure, and dislike school. And studies have shown that 23 percent of students in grades 4-6 have been bullied several times. 8% are bullied weekly. Clearly this is a problem that needs to be addressed.
Mobile Ed, therefore, is proud to present our newest program for 2011-2012, Stronger Than A Bully! Based on techniques aimed at empowering the victim, this fast paced interactive school assembly program is packed with important lessons imparted through lots of audience participation, magic, ventriloquism, role playing, comedy and FUN!
Stronger Than A Bully features extensive use of two acronyms designed to push important points aimed at helping students avoid becoming the victim of a bully.
The first of these is S.M.I.L.E. which stands for Stay cool, Make eye contact (take a positive posture), Identify the attack (verbal, physical, extorting, cyber, etc), Lead positive conversation, Erase the attack. These represent the actions for the person being bullied.
The second acronym explains the actions a bystander should take. H.E.R.O. or - Help out (get involved), Empathize (identify with the victim), Respond with proper action and Report the incident. Open communication (talk about it with the victim)
