In partnership with ITVS, Blueshift developed The Bad Kids Educator Toolkit that includes professional development modules for educators and classroom lessons as well as a general audience discussion guide.  The resource is created specifically for educators and other professionals working in alternative school settings and to support The Bad Kids national broadcast on ITVS, the national community engagement screenings with Indie Pop Up and the CPB initiative American Graduate: Let's Make it Happen

Created with support from ITVS and The Fledging Fund, the toolkit is organized around the film's core themes - Self-Care, Social Emotional Learning in Safe and Inclusive Schools, Developing Resilience, Using Trauma Informed Practices and Building Trusting Relationships. Each topic includes unique character video, professional development content and a classroom lesson.
