"Your energetic style and ability to communicate about complex topics is special. You captured the students' attention and challenged them during the bullying assembly. Well done!" --- Dr. William Stavisky, Superintendent, Perry Central School District Perry, NY
What makes Keith's Bullying Assembly Different?
Keith's show goes beyond the bystander/bully/victim labels to get at the underliying causes of bullying. Keith uses comedy to show students why they do what they do. Keith's background in public education gives him insight into school culture. The "mean girls," status cloths, "in" group and cliques will all come under his comedic wit. Keith challenges the youth and adults in the audience to seriously contemplate how they view one another. "Don't Bully" is about acceptance, making new friends by reaching out, and encouraging the audience to stop judging one another by outward appearance, speech, or economic status. Keith talks about trash throwing and trash catching, haters and hate catching, bullies and spectators. He takes the unusual approach of addressing the mindset of the catcher as well as the thrower. He will inspire those that have been bullied and force the bullies to take a harsh look at why they do what they do. The students that have “caught it” because they learn differently or struggle academically and socially will come away especially inspired.
Keith will also address online bullying so administrators will no longer have to deal with "facebook Monday'. Keith is familiar with the laws that have been passed and are currantly under consideration in each state. He will convey the implications of these laws to his audiance. Students will leave the assembly knowing they can be suspended and even prosocuted for online bullying.
