Identify and Act to Prevent Bullying in Our Class

Scholars begin by listing words related to bullying then discuss their definition as a class. Small groups write sentences or draw a picture that reflects what it is to be a bully, what they do, and how it feels to be bullied. A master list is made with common traits followed by a discussion about ways a bullying problem can be solved. Using their new-found knowledge, pupils draft a plan for if they are bullied—what to do and who to see. An Exit Ticket reflects on the day's instructional activity.
