Curriculum Guide: Letters to a Bullied Girl

Olivia Gardner, a northern California teenager, was severely taunted and cyber-bullied by her classmates for more than two years. News of her bullying spread, eventually reaching two sisters Emily and Sarah Buder. The girls were so moved by Olivia's story that they initiated a letter-writing campaign to help lift her spirits.

In Letters to a Bullied Girl, Olivia and the Buder sisters share an inspiring selection of messages—the personal, often painful remembrances of former targets, remorseful bullies, and sympathetic bystanders.


Letters to a Bullied Girl examines our national bullying epidemic from a variety of angles and perspectives, and includes practical guidance from bullying expert Barbara Coloroso, author of The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander.

Our free curriculum guide was written by Mike Koren, a middle-school teacher in Wisconsin. To receive a copy, please send us an e-mail.
