can happen to anyone, anywhere. The serial story Bully Blasters (which
ran in the Times
during the summer) explores how a student named
Ben and his friends try to stop a bully.
You can download each week's installment of the story and a newspaper
activity designed to
sharpen students' "Bully Blaster" skills below.
Students can win prizes and share their own Bully Blaster solutions
with others at our own "bully pulpit," the NIE BLOGGING ZONE.
Just go to blogs.tampabay.com/nie and select Bully Blaster from the
categories menu to get started.
After reading all ten chapters, students can write their own endings
to Bully Blasters and submit them to the Times
to win prizes and/or get their entries published at tampabay.com/nie.
