NEW Bullying Prevention PowerPoint Available
Rosen Publishing was a proud sponsor of the recent Booklist Online Webinar "Battle Bullying With Books: Celebrate No Name-Calling Week." During the Webinar, we talked about using Teen Health & Wellness as an intervention and prevention resource.
A brand-new PowerPoint presentation on bullying prevention is available for you to share or customize to address your community needs. The slideshow highlights myths and facts about bullying and cyberbullying, how Teen Health & Wellness can help, and how students can take action. Download the file now from the Librarian/Educator Resources.
This excellent database encompasses more than 650 titles on health and wellness, with vocabulary and content geared towards young adults...An interesting inclusion are a series of attractive buttons that quickly inform students about the contents of the article, which encourage users to seek additional information or professional help. I love the inclusion of a myth buster for each article...This is a definite must-have for any high school library. Highly Recommended."
