Bullying is a prevalent issue in society today. The Bonhomie Project is a program developed to engage sixth grade students in learning about bullying and methods to help halt the cycle of bullying in their school. Students learn about the three "key players" of bullying, the various types of bullying, and how to stand up against bullies. This program utilizes R.J. Palacio's award winning novel, Wonder, with students answering questions and discussing the parts of the novel in small groups; students also participate in activities that build up kindness instead of tearing each other down with bullying, and at the end of the program, students will develop their own anti-bullying policies to implement in their school.
