Word of Mouth: An Outside da Box video

Outside da Box has produced a video that deals with issues of bullying, meanness, kindness, and proper Christian living as commonly presented around a Catholic high school. The promotional material introduces the context of the five minute video: "Two girls are living on opposite ends of the social spectrum. One seems to have it all and one is reminded every day that she doesn’t. Then something happens that closes the gap between them."

Play Word of Mouth for your students.

You may wish to use these followup assignments after the students view the video:

  • What is the message of the video?
  • How do you identify with a central character in the story?
  • What are strategies for refraining from gossip and bullying?
  • Think about a person at your school who might need someone to reach out with him or her in friendship and support? Think about three ways you might do that. Implement your plan.
  • Share a Gospel passage that addresses a proper course for behavior.
  • Write a prayer for your peers in need.
