As you have probably heard, students across the country have been experiencing increased levels of bias-based bullying connected to the tenor of the presidential race and its aftermath. That’s why this year’s No Name Calling Week is more important than ever.
GroundSpark is proud to partner with GLSEN for No Name Calling Week 2017. To help create safe schools free of name-calling, bullying and bias, we’re offering free streaming of all of our Respect for All Project films during the month of January!
Our free streams allow educators and youth group leaders to preview five highly acclaimed documentaries, each crafted for targeted age groups:
- That’s a Family! (for elementary school)
- Let’s Get Real (for middle school and early high school)
- Straightlaced—How Gender’s Got Us All Tied Up (for middle school and high school)
- It’s Elementary—Talking About Gay Issues in School (for higher ed)
- It’s Still Elementary (for higher ed)
All titles are excellent discussion starters for college students and professional development as well.
Whether you’re an educator, student, or another kind of school leader, these films are excellent resources for organizing transformative events in your community during No Name-Calling Week.
“GLSEN and GroundSpark are long-time partners in promoting respect for all in our schools. GLSEN connects teachers and students with the tools they need to make a difference, and when used leading up to and during No Name-Calling Week, these powerful films can help foster respectful dialogue around issues of bias and bullying.”
