WISE OWL SAYS: When Telling Isn’t Tattling (cc)


This engaging video combines animation and live-action segments to help young viewers understand the difference between tattling (which aims to land someone else in trouble) and telling (which aims to help someone solve a problem). The program features a wise-cracking animated Wise Owl who tells viewers that if they want to figure out the difference between telling and tattling, they should ask themselves his four “whoo” questions – Who might get hurt? Who is afraid? Who does it help? Who do I tell? The program presents a series of vignettes in which youngsters have to decide what to do. The “whoo rules” are revisited often. Wise Owl Says assists teachers in breaking their students of the tattling habit. Program includes follow-up class activities to reinforce the program’s concepts.
