Today students were asked to complete a Bullying Awareness Survey. This anonymous survey provided students with a series of questions relating to their own personal experiences with bullying. We will analyze this data as a class in preparation for our first novel study. Tomorrow our class will discuss the results of this survey and create connections to our North Stars and Seven Habits.
Each student was given a copy of the novel Egghead by Caroline Pignat. Tomorrow we will have the opportunity to begin the novel in class. Throughout this novel study, students will be asked to read both in class and at home. There will be corresponding activities for each chapter throughout the novel.

I think that Egghead is about a boy who gets bullied because he looks different.
Based off of the front cover of the book I think that it’s about a boy that gets bullied for getting distracted easily. I think this because there is a boy on the cover and I know that this is book is about bullying.
i think it is about a boy who is shy and has problems at home and gets bullied.
There is a dude who gets bullied and can’t handle it anymore
I know it means that its about bullying but I think that the guy that gets bullied gets bullied in school and he is very shy and is scared that he gets bullied so that’s why its called egghead because he is fragile.
I think that Egghead is about a boy who is good in school and he is getting bullied. This book is about his experience being bullied.
i think that egg head is a book about a kid who start it to balive the things that the bully sead
i think its a about a kid that has a head like a egg and gets bulied
I think EggHead is about a boy that likes things other people don’t like and gets bullied for it.
I think it about bullining because thats what you sed but the cover has a egg with a face on it and the top part is broken so it looks like something just left him like that
I think that Egghead is about a boy who is bullied because people think he is the “weird new kid”.
