No Name Calling Week – January 24-28

No Name Calling Week – January 24-28

We try to steer away from recommending any specific business or product, but I just found some great information from  Barnes & Noble’s  website, and had to share. Bullying in any form is cowardly and online bullying means the hurt spreads even further and can do more damage. Barnes & Noble has teamed with GLSEN, Inc and  www.nonamecalling.org to sponsor No Name Calling Week.  Click on pictures below for  information, resources, activities, a resource guide for parents and a jam packed guide for educators. There are links to a kit that can be purchased and a contest, but I didn’t really look into those. I leave that to you, but believe me there is plenty here just a click away.

Barnes & Noble has planned the following activities for January: (we didn’t receive any money for this – it just looked too good not to share!)

  • All Barnes & Noble stores will host a national story time event on Jan. 15 at 11 a.m.
  • Jan. 15-23 will be Barnes & Noble Educator Appreciation Week, during which stores will have No Name-Calling Week materials available for teachers and educators, including book recommendations, tip sheets for organizing No Name-Calling Week events, lesson plans for elementary and middle school students, classroom posters and buttons.
  • Several GLSEN Chapters – Orange County, Phoenix, Rochester, Southeast Michigan and Tampa, and more to be announced – will participate in in-store panel discussions during the week of Jan. 15-23.
  • Barnes & Noble.com (www.bn.com/noname) will feature exclusive video content from bestselling children’s, young adult and adult authors discussing their thoughts and experiences on bullying.
  • Exclusive No Name-Calling articles by James Howe and Jodi Picoult will be featured in the January line-up of the More In Store program available on NOOK, the Barnes & Noble eBook Reader. no name parent resourcesno name educ resources

 

 

 

 

 

 

  And as one little boy wrote:

“My name is Daniel, not wimp or brat; it is not nice to call me that.  Don’t call anyone dumb, weak or lame; instead call them by their given name.”
