For Partner Organizations

21st Century Skills Bullying Prevention Film Competition

[Enter organization name] has partnered with Stories of Us (USA) to establish a
competition which is uniquely designed to promote social cohesion and help reduce
bullying in schools without sacrificing valuable class time – because the competition
curriculum combines a range of 21st Century literacy skills and meets English
Language Arts and Health Education standards.

An excellent interdisciplinary project, students research the subject, collect data and
build realistic timelines to explore how bullying develops, then translate their findings
into short film scripts – and film selected scenes. The curriculum is designed for middle
and high school students, for application in schools or afterschool organizations.

"It would be difficult to find a classroom project that better illustrates the range of
skills currently termed '21st century literacies,' and considered increasingly essential
for academic and real-world achievement."
  National Council of Teachers of English's "Council Chronicle"

Please circulate this announcement throughout your network – particularly to schools!
