Webquests :

  • Tolerance WebQuest by Kris Robino
    "Have you ever been teased? How did it feel? Have you ever teased anyone? If so, WHY?
    Teasing and bullying in schools is a worldwide problem that can have devastating consequences for the general school climate and for the right of the student to learn in a safe classroom environment without fear. Bullying and teasing can also have negative lifelong consequences -- both for students who bully and tease and for their victims. Direct teasing and bullying seems to increase through the elementary years, peak in the middle school/junior high school years, and decline somewhat during the high school years. However, while direct physical assault seems to decrease with age, verbal abuse appears to remain constant. Whether the teasing or bullying is direct or indirect, the key component is that the physical or mental intimidation occurs repeatedly over time to create an ongoing pattern of harassment and abuse. The effects can and are devastating!"

    I am everyday people, yeah yeah
    There is a blue one who can't accept the green one
    For living with a fat one trying to be a skinny one..."

  • Imagine by John Lennon :

    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace"
  • Ugly sung by Sugababes
    "People made me feel like life was unfair
    And I did things that made me ashamed...
    But there will always be the one who will say
    Something bad to make them feel great...
    Everybody talks bad about somebody
    And never realises how it affects somebody
    And you bet it won't be forgotten..."
