Bullies: Who, What and Why for Teachers
This bullying module was developed to help teachers and students deal with bullying in the fourth and fifth grades, in part because much bullying reportedly begins in sixth grade, and we want to help stop bullying before it ever begins.
It is not meant to be comprehensive. Instead, it is meant to be easily used by teachers to provide information, individual activities and group exercises, as well as resources, that can be used together, or in pieces, in class, or as homework.
The goal of this material is to help kids understand that there are different kinds of bullying, develop the personal skills required to stand up to bullies or report their behavior, and support their friends to stop the bullying.
Each activity in this module can be linked to at least one National Health Education Standard (included in Appendix A) and has a purpose, a list of supplies required, some suggested discussion points, a key and list the actual page from the student module that you will need to reproduce.
