Pattie Porter and I had the pleasure of interviewing Priscilla Prutzman the executive director of Creative Response to Conflict on the topic of bullying, cyber-bullying and homophobia. For those of you who work with youth (K-12) and anyone in higher education you know that cyber-bullying is a current, ever changing challenge to your field. We discussed research on bullying, cyber-bullying and homophobia and cite examples of this emotionally charged topic. Creative techniques such as the Jeopardy Game, read arounds and interactive quizzes will model innovative teaching methods that merge theory and practice.
