With a rise in the concerns over bullying in the school setting, more programs have been created to address the issue. For this assignment, research three “character counts” or anti-bullying programs available for the early childhood classroom setting.

In a 150-250 word table or chart, explain the following:

  1. The background of the programs;
  2. How the program encourages a safe learning environment for young children;
  3. Strategies the program suggests for fostering non-violent behavior and anti-bullying with young children; and
  4. Additional elements that stand out (success stories, school/home connection, training, etc.).

In 150-250 words, explain which program you would use in your classroom. Include the benefits and challenges you might face.

While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected.
