This is FREE booklet. It was a quick reference guide for various ways that teachers can help reduce bullying. The author suggests using a bullying survey to get a sense of whether or not bullying is a major problem and to provide insight as to the type of bullying and where it is occurring. This is the same advice given in the book, "Mean Girls..."
We understand that bullying is a problem, but too often we think that someone else is responsible for solutions. It is a community issue and therefore all parties should have a part in combating the issue of bullying. This article is simple but gives practical tips to administrators, parents, and teachers for how they can help in bullying situations.
We often teach kids not to bully and we tell them to not be a bystander, but seldom do we teach replacement strategies or what to do when bullying occurs. Kids need to know that they have power and can help to combat bullying by being an ally. I love the idea of a student leadership team who facilitates the lessons.
This is a great book filled with ready to use activities to help combat relational aggression. Even though this book is geared toward girls, it can be used for boys as well. The survey inside this book is a bit lengthy but the results provide a great deal of information that can be used to develop strategies and future interventions.
