No Name-Calling Week is Jan. 24-28 - Resources

Great resources for TLs and teachers to bring into the classroom any time of the year, but especially No Name Calling Week.

No Name-Calling Week is Jan. 24-28, 2011, and is based on an idea from James Howe's book, "The Misfits." The Barnes and Noble site offers 17 short video clips from authors/illustrators (including James Howe) who talk about bullying. (The video window has a cover-flow list of video clips you can scroll through.)

Some of the people in the videos are:
  • James Howe
  • Laurie Halse Anderson
  • Alex Sanchez
  • Ellen Hopkins
  • Margaret Peterson Haddix
  • Dan Gutman
