From Dr. Kenneth Shore, author of The ABC's of Bullying Prevention, An Educator's Guide to Bullying Prevention, and Bullying Prevention for Students with Disabilities comes the new book The Bullying Prevention Book of Lists: A Practical, Easy-to-Use Guide for All School Staff. This new release is now in stock and can be purchased through the NPR, Inc. website at at http://www.nprinc.com/the-bullying-prevention-book-of-lists/.
There is not an educator in America today for whom bullying is not a concern and bullying prevention is not a responsibility. Educators need to know bullying facts and trends, what their legal and professional responsibilities are, and research-based best practices for responding to and preventing bullying. Furthermore, educators must recognize the fundamental importance of a positive school climate—an environment where all members of the school community feel safe, supported, and respected— and must know how to promote the the values and behaviors that contribute to such a climate. The Bullying Prevention Book of Lists offers all this and more in a convenient, accessible format. Designed to provide school administrators, teachers, and support staff with quick access to key information and practical strategies, this book is an invaluable tool for any K-12 school.
Chapters in The Bullying Prevention Book of Lists include:
In addition, the book provides an extensive Resources section that recommends useful organizations and websites for school staff, parents and students, as well as links to downloadable surveys and guidance documents, and fiction and non-fiction books for students in elementary, middle and high school. Selected short and full-length films, songs, and anecdotes of celebrities who were bullied are also included in the resources section.
