This week’s tip is more of a resource. Since it is the week of respect, I wanted to share a resource that I came across. I remember this video floating around a few years ago. Originally a poem by Shane Koyczan, the To This Day Project was started to mark the anti-bullying initiative “Pink Shirt Day”- which aims to highlight the effect of long-term bullying on students in school and to help schools better deal with this situation.
Shane Koyczan later released an animated video set to his poem. I remember showing this to my English class when I was teaching and remember the impact it had and raw emotion it drew from my students.
Take a minute to check out the video below.
