The Driscoll Dummies NO BULLY ZONE interactive ventriloquist show helps students identify bullies and bullying behaviors and provides effective strategies in coping and dealing with bullying. Through humorous Ventriloquist face mask routines involving several volunteers from the audience, Kevin Driscoll will help identify the four main types of bullies and associated bullying behaviors:
Cyber Bullying - bullying behavior using technology, as in harmful texts or emails
Physical Bullying - hitting, pushing and harmful physical contact
Verbal Bullying - name calling and teasing
Social or Relational Bullying - exclusion and leaving one out
The Driscoll Dummies help students recognize where bullying takes place and why. They show students a process to take control of the situation themselves by first teaching how to identify the bully, the victim and the bystander in a bullying situation. They also explain the consequences of being a bully.
Students are taught to take action while staying safe using the acronym SAFE: Stand tall and speak up, Ask for help, Figure out your options and End it calmly by remaining cool and in control.
Also, students are taught how to respond and how to be a HERO - Help out, Empathize, Report and create Open communication.
Best of all, the above lessons are reinforced through ventriloquist comedy. Kids Learn Better When They Laugh™. The Driscoll Dummies will give you and your students the foundation you need to continue battling bullying in your school. Audience participation, comedy plus loads of ventriloquism and great messages on how to be your own personal best makes this show a winner!
