Bullying Prevention

 

Course Description:

 Bullying prevention is a topic that every teacher must eventually deal with in their career. Students in this course will explore how bullying is a result of the relationships between the individual, family, peer group, community and culture. Teachers will learn how to prevent bullying from happening in their classrooms, as well as how to help bullied children cultivate the resources needed to heal. They will learn to create classrooms that are non-violent, compassionate and safe places to learn. Some of the topics covered in the course include: the differences between boy and girl bullies, the role of peers in bullying, classroom atmospheres that support or discourage bullying, sexual harassment, as well as how to implement a successful intervention program.
