  Original Published: 9/25/2013More than a dozen educators took part in a free Confronting Bullying workshop Tuesday at Malabar Intermediate School. The workshop titled, "Who's the Hero?," Confronting Bullying Through the Arts," helps teachers explore how the arts can be a powerful tool in a character education program by helping students discuss, reflect and react to bullying. Teaching artist Karen Erickson presented the workshop as part of the Kennedy Center's Partners in Education program. "Drama is a powerful way in which to engage students in the issues of bullying because it allows them to walk in the shoes of other people to develop empathy and gain a greater understanding of human behavior among their students," Erickson said.  "This workshop helps to identify maybe issues that might arise in a classroom situation and how to address them maybe outside the norm of what most disciplines do," Renaissance Theatre, President/CEO Michael Miller said. The workshop was developed in association with The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and is partially underwritten by the U.S. Department of Education, and the National Committee for the Performing Arts. The event also included a dinner for those in attendance. Participants also received up to three contact hours for professional development credit.
