     Bullying is worldwide concern because everyday, people around the world are picked on and it may lead to injury, hurt feelings, feeling of fear, or even suicide. Mostly bullying takes
place at school or online.  1 out of 4 teens are bullied, also 160,000 students
stay home because they are scared about being bullied.  The most frequent place
where bullying takes place, 43%, occurs in a school bathroom.  If you see kids
being bullied, you can stand up for the person or you can tell an adult. 
Bullying is important to me because everyday I see kids picking on other kids,
the person that is the bully may think that it is just a joke, but inside the
person’s feelings may be hurt. 
      I used colorpencil and markers to create my hexagon. My
drawing is cut in half, one side is clenched teeth and eyebrows pointed down
like the bully.  The other side has an eye with tears runinng down the face,
which represents the person that just got bullied. Remember, it isn’t big to
make others feel small.

I think that it is really cool that you drew two different faces representing the two different sides of the situation. One being the bully and the other one that is being bullied. Your drawing of both of your faces are really realistic and feel really bad for the teens that are being bullied. Its really good!!! :)

    I teach middle school art in the suburban Chicago area. This project has allowed my eighth grade students to confront global issues and to have an artistic voice that expresses their concerns and passions that one day just might change the world.

    I teach with Emily Cook in a Chicago suburban school. While my students have learned about global issues in the past, this project allowed them to see that these are not problems that people in other places in the world have to deal with, but rather, that these are world problems, and since we all have a civic responsibility to the world, these are our problems too.
