Monday - Starting the Discussion Toolkit

Bullying 101

Morning Announcement

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Schools, organizations, and communities are raising awareness of bullying prevention and teaching students how to respond effectively to bullying situations.

Today's topic is "Bullying 101." Bullying can take many forms. It can be physical, and it also can be emotional and social—using words to hurt someone, leaving someone out, or gossiping and spreading rumors. Bullying also happens over cell phones and the Internet. In your classroom today, you will learn what bullying is, how to identify it, and why it happens.
