Battle bullying: Participate in No Name-Calling Week



The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) is currently working with more than 50 sponsors to bring anti-bullying education to thousands of elementary, middle and high schools across the U.S. The week, spanning Monday, Jan. 24, through Friday, Jan. 28, offers communities the tools they need to begin a discussion about ending bullying. GLSEN wants you to drop the sticks and stones, and leave hurtful habits at the door.


Barnes & Noble is the most recent partner to come on board. You can watch interviews with stars like Hilary Duff and authors like Laurie Halse Anderson on their website. They’ve also put together a few popular reads that focus on bullying. Head to your local library and check out…


The Misfits by James Howe 

A group of seventh-grade misfits have been picked on their whole lives. What happens when they decide they’re not going to take it anymore?


Blubber by Judy Bloom 

What started as a note to a bestie turns into a firestorm before picked-on Linda, called “Blubber,” can even return to her seat. Where will the “fun” end?


The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

Tough-on-the-outside Ponyboy Curtis narrates this YA classic about two rival gangs and their constant battles.


Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

Melinda enters high school friendless and depressed after something terrible happened over the summer. Will the school bully stifle her spirit?
