Students choose characters and role-play through a typical day at middle school, learning to:
  • Distinguish between bullying and other behaviors.
  • Help a victim of bullying, including how to ask an adult for help.
  • Advocate using student-created anti-bullying campaigns.
  • Define and respond to sexual harassment.
  • Demonstrate appropriate social skills through role-playing, peer interaction, and written activities.
  • Identify and communicate three ways teachers, administrators, and parents can improve school climate.
The program features video segments and educational games. Included is a guide preparing teachers and counselors to use Act Now! in classrooms, and an online staff/community member program on creating bully-free schools.
