Using our Powers for Good in Bullying Prevention

Using our Powers for Good in Bullying Prevention

One important role of educators is to help young people navigate where they fit in and how to use their voice. Identifying who you are while trying to secure a sense of belonging and personal power makes adolescence extremely complicated especially when youth are mistreated by their peers at the same time. Guest Angie Rooker explains how her new fantasy book for middle school students can open up dialogues that help young people and adults use their power for the most good and stop forms of mistreatment such as exclusion, put-downs and other forms of bullying.
