Tuesday - Starting the Discussion Toolkit

What Can You Do?

Morning Announcement

Today’s bullying prevention topic is "What Can You Do?" Everyone knows that bullying situations involve the student who's targeted and the student doing the bullying. Did you also know that many situations involve bystanders—students who aren't involved directly but see what's happening?

Bystanders are powerful. In fact, more than half of bullying situations will end if bystanders step in. Direct confrontation is one way to intervene. Indirect help—such as not encouraging the situation or offering support to the person being bullied—is also effective. Bystanders can also let other students know that bullying is not okay. In your classroom today, you will be learning about different ways to respond to bullying situations.

Classroom Education and Activities

Active Learning and Discussion

Are you being bullied? Bullying can happen to anyone – and it’s not so simple to recognize. Review these questions and learn more.

Could You Be the Bully? There is no typical student who bullies. Review these questions and learn more.

Person First – Explain the importance of recognizing the person first, then his or her differences.

Discussion Questions:

(To make sure all students participate, you may want to break the class into groups of 5 to 8 students. Appoint one student in each group to take notes and report results to the class. Consider using that feedback for future bullying prevention projects.)
