Stop bullying-Words Hurt
Discrimination is based on prejudice and embraces many forms: direct on an individual or groups of people, discrimination on culture or religion, races and many others. It can be obvious or hidden and disadvantages certain people for a specific reason.
Communities can and should do a lot to prevent bullying and discrimination because bullying it doesn’t happen only between children at school, it can happen everywhere, at work, at home, in the communities where we live or over the Internet.

This DIVERSITY DAYBOOK was designed so that students can journal about their individuality and special qualities that makes them unique and worthy as citizens in our diverse society. Diversity awareness is important in our society because it helps children unlearn stereotypes.
This daybook will also sanction students to establish lifelong relationships while esteeming the values and significance of others for years to come.
Students cannot all be alike. There are differences as well as similarities among them. As students begin to acknowledge, accept and share their differences and similarities one to another they will begin to come to terms with diversity.
As a mother, educator and author, it is important for me to see children learning about each other in healthy respectable ways. In fact, the rich colors of this text depicts how rich, colorful and diverse we are as a people.
Once students have completed their Diversity Daybooks, hopefully you and I will see more healthy relationships, as well as a decline in bullying behaviors in our nation’s schools.
In part, this daybook will support the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) exam standards in the areas of:
Writing/composition/expressions/describing interactions of characters and relationships/identify cause and effect/identify points of view.
Identify selected racial, ethnic, and religious groups/culture/citizenship.
