As school starts back up again, we wanted to take some time to share one of the resources that we have available for educators or really anyone working with students to use to deliver information on how to prevent and address bullying. This resource is called All In. It's a free, weekly year-long toolkit designed to create environments where all students feel involved, included, and invested in bullying prevention.

In today's episode, we're going to share more about what All In is and how you can use it with your students. Now that you know more about today's episode, let's get into the video. So first, what is All In? All In has 32 weekly lessons with materials designed to address and prevent bullying. It can be used in the classroom, community setting, or any environment where you're working with students. All In is designed to be used during the school year, so from September to April. And each of the eight months has its own theme. The lessons can be delivered in 20 minutes or whatever timeframe you have available. And the materials are appropriate for K through 12th grade students, as many of the resources have multiple options available for elementary school students and then for middle and high school students.

Next up, let's talk about the monthly structure. As I mentioned, every month has its own theme. Some of the themes include realities of bullying, cyberbullying, advocacy, starting the conversation. Now, while every month has its own unique theme, each month also follows the same weekly pattern, which goes as this: Week one is a PowerPoint. This has more content and information on the topic that's designed to be delivered by the instructor. Week number two is a classroom interaction. This is to follow up on the content from the previous week. This is something that can be done in the classroom or community setting to really get your students talking more about the topic.

Then, week number three is a club-sponsored activity or something that can be done on a school-wide level, to get every student involved in this conversation. And finally, week number four is a book or a video with a follow-up activity or discussion. While these resources are designed to be presented every week during the school year, they're also flexible enough that you can tailor them to what works with you and your schedule. For example, maybe that means combining lessons into one day of activities or pulling out certain lessons ad hoc to fit into your schedule. Find what works best for you and your students and use the resources in that way. That's really what they're designed for.

Now that you know more about All In and the structure and its format, let's get into one of the months as an example of how All In works. Once you complete the free registration, you'll be taken to this page, which is the All In homepage. The homepage starts by having more information about All In, sharing additional information about the structure, and ideas on how you can use it with your students.

On the top of the page are a row of tabs that feature every single month. Click into the month that you're interested in. So for this video, since we're going to go through the month as an example, we'll start with September, which has the monthly theme of starting the conversation.

Now, as you can see, we have clicked into the month of September. And every month, just as this one does, starts with a monthly introduction that has more information on the topic and resources that will be shared during that month. Next up, as you scroll down, you'll see the resources for week one, which is a PowerPoint.

In this month, you'll see there's two different options that you can choose based on the age of students that you're working with. So there's one option for elementary school students and then another for middle and high school students. One thing to note with week one and all the PowerPoints that we included is that they all feature educator notes, which include discussion questions for your students and more information that you can use when presenting the PowerPoint.

After the PowerPoint, you'll find the classroom interaction for week two. This week, it's a quiz to test your students' knowledge. And the information in the quiz is based off of the PowerPoint information from week one. As you can see here, similarly to week one, there's different options available depending on the age of students you're working with. So an option for elementary school students and then an option for middle and high school students.

Along with a quiz, we also have a PDF with educator notes that features additional information and more discussion questions you can use during this classroom interaction. Then, you'll see week three, which is the club activity. Now this week is really designed with activities so that every student in your school or community or whatever environment you're using this in can participate and feel involved.

I absolutely love the week three activity for September, which is all about welcoming messages. So as it's back-to-school season in September, this activity has students write on post-it notes welcoming messages and then put them on every locker in the school.

And finally, in week four, you'll find a book or video. So in September, we have two videos. Again, one video is for younger students. The second video is for older students. And they both have follow-up activities and discussion questions. One thing that I think is really amazing to note with this section is that we wanted to make sure that All In was a completely free resource.

So for any of the weeks in the toolkit that have a book, we actually have a free PDF of the book available for you to download and use with your students. And then that's it for September. You'll find the same weekly structure in the rest of the month, so PowerPoint, classroom interaction, club activity, and book or video, just with different resources revolving around different themes.

And with that, that's a wrap on this week's episode of PACER Talks About Bullying. If you want more information on All In or want to register for this free resource, you can go to our website, which is We hope you learned a little bit more about All In and can find ways to use this with your students so that everyone feels involved, invested, and included in preventing and addressing bullying. We'll see you right back here next week. And remember, together, we can create a world without bullying. See you.
