Reflection #2 Throughout this article there were a lot of things that I was not aware took place. I did not realize that there were so many children that are made fun of and picked on throughout the United States daily. There really needs to be an end that is put to this.

Strategies for Dealing with Bullying 1. Turn the situations into a learning experience for the children. 2. Have the class brainstorm ideas to prevent it from ever happening again. 3. The individual that is bullying is never singled out or talked to in front of the class, they are always alone where no one can hear them. It is now believed that if something is said in front of the class then it will not happen(Gleason) again.
Reflection #3One thing that teachers should be able to do before they are allowed to get their teaching licenses is to know how to control bullies. There are many children that are bullied on a daily basis and it is not right. There are strategies that each teacher should do to help stop this issue from reoccurring.
Conclusion1. There are so many different types of bullying that exist now. They can range anywhere from text messaging to verbally yelling at someone.2. Bullying happens to everyone, it doesn’t matter on the individuals race, gender, or grade. It does however effect some individuals more than others.3. One way for teachers to try to eliminate bullying is by talking to their students in front of the class and not just alone and private.
