My students connected immediately to the film.  They were drawn to the true account of words, actions and emotions of the perpetrator.  In the post-film discussion, many students shared their own encounters with bullying, whether they had been targets, bystanders or perpetrators themselves. The film opened up an honest discussion, especially for my quieter students.  After class, one student informed me of daily teasing he was experiencing on the playground.  The film gave him the courage to speak up and get the help he needed. ‘Confessions of a Social Bully’ empowers students to recognize bullying even when it seems subtle, and to speak up for others and themselves.
