Dare: Bystander vs Upstander

In fourth grade this week we finished up our bullying unit with the much anticipated Dare by Erin Frankel.  This is the third book in The Weird Series that features the same story told from 3 different perspectives: the bully, the bystander & the target.  Students were anxiously awaiting the last character's perspective because it most relates to the position they are often in.

After reading and discussing the story from Jayla's point of view, we created flipbooks to differentiate the behavior of a bystander compared to an upstander.  Whereas a bystander = stand by; an upstander = stands up.  We brainstormed qualities of each and they used their creativity to get the point across.
