Stop Bullying with Data Percentages

Bullying

Overview

In this lesson, students will use percentages to examine data on bullying while building civic skills of explaining and analyzing information and arguments. Using previous knowledge of fractions and percentages, students will examine current data about bullying from the CDC. Students will create a campaign for the school community that would provide data on bullying in the school. As a follow-up, students can present their campaign to the larger governing bodies in their schools.
