Act Now! 3rd Grade
This teacher or counselor-facilitated course helps third grade students learn the basics of bullying, along with the skills needed to be a good friend and how to understand their feelings. They will learn to differentiate bullying from non-bullying behaviors, understand the roles people play in bullying situations, and demonstrate how to calm down when angry. The course consists of short online lessons, engaging videos, and fun educational games that will give students the opportunity to practice the skills they have learned. Act Now! 3rd Grade is designed to be projected onto an interactive white board. Students learn collaboratively as a class, while taking turns making choices and giving answers throughout the program. There is also the option of providing students with their own usernames and passwords to work through the program independently. Offline activities can still be conducted with the whole class.
The delivery method is blended, utilizing a combination of online lessons and activities, and offline classroom activities.
