This 27-minute videotape, designed for late elementary and middle school age students, addresses the issues of verbal, emotional, and physical bullying. The video acknowledges that most of the perpetrators of previous, highly publicized events of school violence (such as Columbine, CO) have been victims of bullying and torment. While the videotape does not depict a child bringing a gun to school, it suggests that tormented children are capable of doing so. The bullied child in the videotape is wrestling between harming his adversaries or himself. Also addressed is the issue of what those who witness violence can do. "Standing up" for those who are tormented by bullying and harassment is presented as empowering to the victims and witnesses and as a direct intervention on the forces of enabling. Included is a study guide for use both before and after viewing the videotape. (GCP)
