"BRAVO! A program that could change so many lives!" - Teaching PreK-8 Magazine. Also recommended by the Boston Herald.
Developed by educators trained in the Olweus method - the internationally accepted model of bullying prevention.
Set in format of a classic radio play, Jeff's Journey is the story of a bully who finds himself bullied when he moves to a new school.
Through his interaction with adults, friends, and new acquaintances, Jeff comes to understand the consequences of his behavior. There are 12 dramatic episodes on the CD with a large and engaging cast of characters. At the end of each episode "points to ponder" are offered for classroom discussion.
The Jeff's Journey program includes an audio CD, teacher's guide with reproducibles, and a complete script for student performance or reader's theater.
Jeff's Journey can provide the foundation for a school anti-bullying program. Teachers may choose to play one episode per week in class with time for discussion and follow-up activities.
The radio play can even be broadcast over the school PA system as each episode lasts between 6 and 10 minutes and builds to a dramatic conclusion.
The methodology used in the program is based on broad behavioral research and evidence-based assessment in actual school settings.
