Hip Hop Artist Skrap Dawg and Crew talk to kids about bullying. He will design the program for your school touch on a few or all of the topics below, time permitting.

INTRODUCTION: Skrap will tell the kids about him and them why stopping bullying in school is important to him.

He will do the following:

Interact with Kids about the four types of bullying: Role Play bullying

  • ~ Physical – hurting someone physically.
  • ~ Verbal- calling some a name or teasing him or her.
  • ~ Mental-judging or discriminating against someone who is not the same as you.
  • ~ Cyber- using technology to gully someone.

Make sure students understand what bullying is and how to handle being bullied. While Skrap is teaching the kids that "Bullies Ain't Kool", he will also introduce them to what is Kool and how to be a part of it.

Students will learn what to do in a bullying situation whether they are one of the following:

  1.    ~ The Bully
  2.    ~ The Bystander
  3.    ~ The Victim

 

Each role has a responsibility. Skrap Dawg will encourage kids to speak to a teacher, principal, parent, or a trusted adult regarding being bullied or witnessing bullying.

Skrap will also teach the bully (we like to use the term MISDIRECTED child) the following:

  •    ~ Think about what you say, before saying it
  •    ~ Control your temper and walk away from the situation
  •    ~ Keep your voice down and don’t use mean words
  •    ~ If they are a MISDIRECTED child, they can change. They can apologize and talk to an adult about learning how to respect others and  themselves.

 

Kids who answer questions correctly or participate, will get a prize of a sticker or bracelet.BBE Stop Bullying

If the school is really good with avoiding bullying, Skrap Dawg’s best friend (Costume Mascot) Skrappy Doggy Dawg may make an appearance to shake hands with the students.

If available, Skrap will give all students Bullying Ain’t Kool Badges to wear every day to remind them about bullying.

PERFORMANCE: Skrap will end with his song “Bullies Aint Kool”.

 One week prior to arrive:

We ask that you prepare the kids for Skrap’s arrival by doing one of the following:

  •    ~ play a portion of the chorus of the song each day during morning or afternoon announcements
  •    ~ Learn the song in music class
  •    ~ Spend 10 minutes per day to discuss bullying scenarios
  •    ~ Each teacher spends about 5 minutes to allow the kids to listen to the chorus.

 

By doing one of the following, it will prep the kids for the visit and make it more memorable and special for them.

 


Middle and Jr. High School Program / Assembly 

6th – 8th Grade

Last 45 minutes


Hip Hop Artist and Crew talk to preteens about bullying. We will design the program for your school touch on a few or all of the topics below, time permitting.

Interact with Kids about the four types of bullying:

  • ~ Physical – hurting someone physically. Girls bullying by gossip
  • ~ Verbal- calling some a name or teasing him or her.
  • ~ Mental-judging or discriminating against someone who is not the same as you.
  • ~ Cyber- using technology to bully someone.

 

Make sure students understand what bullying is and how to handle being bullied. While Skrap is teaching the kids that "Bullies Ain't Kool", he will also introduce them to what is Kool and how to be a part of it.

INTRODUCTION: It seems that if you ask someone what he or she would do in a situation, they give you the best answer possible or the answer they wish they could do and know is the right answer.  But often, that is not the choice they would actually make if they were in that situation. These activities will have them understand how to make the right decisions and think about what will happen if you make the wrong choice.

INSTRUCTIONS: Skrap will have groups of students to role play (previously rehearsed) skits regarding bullying. For each situation, three to four kids will act out the scenario. Before the solution is acted out, Skrap Dawg will ask the students to think about what they think is the best answer to the question and why.  each skit, he will “Freeze” the kids to ask questions about ways the situation could be handled.

Note: The groups are pre-arranged and previously picked by teachers in advance. Chosen students will already know the skits days before.  A Member from the We Are The Village Project will meet with the students prior to the program. Diversed groups are encouraged.

PERFORMANCE: Skrap will end with his song “Bullies Aint Kool”. He will have a group of chosen students (Pre-rehearsed) to sing the chorus of the song “Bullies Ain’t Kool” on stage with him.

Note: The group is pre-arranged and previously picked by the choir or music director at the school. Students should learn the song and backup singers for the artist.

At this age, it is extremely important that the teens see their peers participating in the Anti-Bully – Bullies Ain’t Kool programs. They will see that their friends agree with Skrap, Bullies Ain’t Kool.
