After reading the anti-bullying tale called ‘Thicken your skin to put-downs’, students will respond to six Bloom’s Taxonomy questions.

The teacher can use the questions as listed on the Examiner.com link called “Writing assignment: Thicken your skin to put-downs.”

Alternatively, the teacher can print off the downloadable free worksheet called “Let’s write about the anti-bullying tale called ‘Thicken your skin to put-downs’.”

What’s the story about?

Story Description: Here is a story scenario you can use to help teach your students some potential humorous retorts they can use when other kids attempt to put them down. It might just help them to thicken their skin to put-downs.

Wayne and Melinda are tired of being put down. They both decide to use some humorous retorts to help them defuse the conflict. The humorous retorts are so successful that they start teaching these techniques to some of their friends. Perhaps some of these ideas will work for you and your friends as well.

The humorous retorts used in this story came from an actual Chicago social worker who worked at a school for unwed girls. I met her on a cruise we both took. She shared with me several ideas to help kids thicken their skin to put-downs.
