A Simple, Powerful Story for Bullying Prevention Month

This moving trailer shares the grief of an Ecuadorian family after one of its own has been killed by hatred and intolerance.  An excerpt from the documentary, “Not In Our Town: Light in the Darkness,” and PBS LearningMedia accompanying resources allow students to think about important questions during Bullying Prevention Month in October as they’re settling into the new school year.

The lesson plan is based on the documentary and focuses on how a town comes together to take action after anti-immigrant violence devastates the community. The story and support resources will prompt your class to think about the underlying causes of violence and how to heal divisions and take steps to make sure all community members feel respected.
