I’ve just finished watching the movie called Bully. If you haven’t seen it I highly recommend it. It would be great for all teachers, parents, and majority of students.
I hope that schools have a zero tolerance policy for bullying on school grounds. This policy NEEDS to be enforced in our schools. I’m sure most of you have heard the term practice what you preach. This goes along with bullying. Sure we can have a policy in place, but its what we do when we encounter bullying at schools that will make a difference.
In this video the teachers believe that bullying isn’t a problem, but it’s everywhere! It is our responsibility as teachers to prevent bullying to the best of our ability.
Educating our students on bullying is where prevention starts. There are endless resources that can be used for bullying prevention. For my health class my group put together a bullying resource kit. If anybody is interested I would definitely share!
What do you do or will you do in your classroom to prevent bullying?
