Clayton State University’s Education Speaker Series, “Teaching in a Diverse World,” will continue on Monday, Mar. 26 by discussing a topic made even more relevant by the events yesterday at a high school outside of Cleveland, where a young man who had been subjected to school bullying shot five students, killing two.
Preventing Childhood Bullying: Viewing “The Fat Boy Chronicles,” will be the subject of a presentation on Mar. 26, from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., in the Auditorium of the main building of Clayton State – East, which is located on Trammell Road in Morrow, just east of the main Clayton State campus. Like all of the Education Speaker Series events, this presentation is free and open to the public.
Inspired by a true story, “The Fat Boy Chronicles” reveals the emotionally painful world obese teens experience in the face of a thin-obsessed society. A screening of the film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring author and former mathematics teacher, Michael Buchanan, along with actors, film makers, and children’s health advocates. Panelists will speak on the inspiration for the book and the issue of bullying in today’s classrooms. Also under discussion will be the craft of writing and the art of film making.
