As tragic incidents of bullying continue to plague the nation’s schools and are amplified by the 24/7 world of text, twitter, and chat, educators have a new tool to fight the perplexing problem of cyber bullying. Stepping On Up with Michael Pritchard, a vibrant and highly engaging DVD series for upper elementary school students, offers teachers, librarians, counselors, social workers, and after-school program staff a new, innovative tool to prevent bullying.
Created by the producer of LifeSteps and You Can Choose! and hosted by veteran youth counselor Michael Pritchard, Stepping On Up uses proven-effective approaches to instill the necessary social and emotional skills to successfully navigate the profound challenges and changes of elementary school, middle school, and the teen years. It’s entertaining, comic format engages students and opens the door to otherwise hard-to-tackle topics like bullying and cyber bullying.
“As every educator knows, engaging students and transforming negative behaviors is not an easy task,” explains veteran writer/producer Jim Watson. “The fast-paced, comic approach of Stepping on Up is perfectly suited to grab the attention of today’s students and engage them in lively group problem-solving sessions.” Its student-based solutions coupled with the warm and welcoming humor of Michael Pritchard make Stepping On Up a powerful classroom catalyst and an invaluable enhancement to any character education, life skills, or anti-bullying curriculum.
