Name-calling and bullying are at epidemic proportions among youth across the country, and are often the root causes of violence in schools. Let's Get Real gives young people the chance to tell their stories in their own words and the results are heartbreaking, shocking, inspiring and poignant. Unlike the vast majority of films made for schools about the issue, Let's Get Real doesn't sugarcoat the truth or feature adults lecturing kids about what to do when "bad" kids pick on them.
Let's Get Real examines a variety of issues that lead to taunting and bullying, including racial differences, perceived sexual orientation, learning disabilities, religious differences, sexual harassment and others. The film not only gives a voice to targeted kids, but also to kids who do the bullying to find out why they lash out at their peers and how it makes them feel. The most heartening part ofLets Get Real includes stories of kids who have mustered the courage to stand up for themselves or a classmate.
The accompanying 132-page Let's Get Real curriculum guide features valuable lesson plans, discussion starters, classroom activities and handouts for teachers to use in conjunction with the film.
When used with students, Let's Get Real has inspired honest dialogue that establishes an awareness about their own roles in society and what they can do to prevent prejudice and promote understanding.
Schools and community groups may also sign up for staff training on how to use Let's Get Real as a teaching tool in classrooms.
