Nauset HRA : Anti-bullying Curriculum (ABC) 

Through her nearly 20 years of teaching, Lisa Brown has noticed the dire need for a new understanding of the concepts, terms and ideology that is in of itself. As a result co-presidents Kahla J. and Charlotte W. with the-help of the their team created a template for elementary schools to better teach children about the harm of bullying. In addition to giving the curriculum to schools we have also brought high school students to elementary schools to preform the activities and teach through the motto,                                    "Create a Culture of Kindness."             

The curriculum is filled with activities such as (above) which is called "The School Bus Freeze-frame", the exercise gives HRA members Bully, bystander, upstander, and observer positions and they ask they crowd what is going on here to get a better understanding of how hurtful situations can be and what you as the viewer can do to stop it.
