The Empathy Challenge is a positive anti-bullying presentation for students in grades 5-9 that focuses on building empathy among the participants.
Students interact continually with each other and with the speaker as dysfunctional behavior is addressed in a non-threatening and enjoyable way. The presentation instructs using positive reinforcement and, ironically, the word “bully” isn’t mentioned once throughout the assembly.
