Presenter: Mary Massie, Ph.D., MFA Bullies are everywhere these days, and we all need to know more about how to deal with this growing epidemic. Our workshop will compare some personal tales of bullying by well-known authors in Dear Bully with the fictional experiences of Piddy, the Latina teenager who is tormented by “mean girl” Yaqui Delgado in Meg Medina’s award-winning novel. We will explore how reading and writing stories and plays can equip students (and adults) for life’s challenges. Resources for combatting and preventing bullying will also be included. Mary Massie, Ph.D., MFA, is a Senior Literacy Specialist at CCAS/NEIU and one of the founders of the CCAS Young Adult Literature Conference. She loves researching current young adult literature to find books with the potential to change lives for the better. Cindy Zucker is a Bilingual-ESL Specialist at the CCAS. She believes that bilingual people bring twice as much to the conversation! Part of the CenterSpace Young Adult Literature Workshop Series 2 CPDUs Will be Given
