*What Targets of Bullying Can Do
*An Overview of Bullying
*Why Bullies Bully
*Bullying in Our School
*Choose Your Own Topic & Get It Approved
2.) Get a Graphic Organizer from your Teacher
3.) Use the following resources to help you find your information to fill in the Graphic Organizer. This is just a start, you can use any suitable resources, including printed materials:

4.) Write down your resources as you use them. There will be an area for this on your graphic organizer, but do not forget to do it. You will need to enter this information on your brochure and in your Powerpoint or on your poster.
5.)Create your Pamphlet using Microsoft Publisher. With your information, include clip art to enhance your pamphlet. Remember, there will be six columns of information: three on the front and three on the back. (Your teacher will show you a sample during class).
6.)Create your Powerpoint presentation using Microsoft Powerpoint or create a poster. You should use all of the information in your Powerpoint that you included in your pamphlet. Additional information can be added in the Powerpoint to make your information even clearer. Do not spend a great deal of time formatting your powerpoint (backgrounds, colors, animations), these tasks can be worked on once all of your information has been added to your presentation.
7.) Rehearse presenting your information. You will be presenting your information in front of the class. Your teacher will have a sign up sheet for presentations during the last few days of computer work.
