The #Up2Us Anti-Bullying Kit is a resource for Junior Cycle teachers. The aim of the Kit is to empower post-primary students to address bullying, in particular cyber bullying, in their local communities. It includes a teachers’ handbook which has ten lessons that cover the anti-bullying section of the new Junior Cycle SPHE course. The lessons attempt to engage students on cyber bullying using active and engaging methodologies and updated, relevant information.
Our approach included developing templates, graphics and a custom alphabet to allow the students produce and share their own personal anti-bullying campaigns. This was accompanied by engaging workbooks which helped communicate the core concepts of the campaign in an appropriate and engaging way.
