  • Boys vs. Girls: How they bully differently
    It is said that boys and girls bully differently
    Boys are more likely to display physical intimidation while girls are more likely to verbally lash out
    Boys bully both boys and girls, whereas girls usually just bully other girls
    Boys are open about their bullying but girls are more secretive making it harder to spot
  • Boys vs. Girls: How they bully differently cont.
    Boys are just as likely to cyber bully although girls are more likely to report the bullying to an adult
    Girls report more positive opinions on how their teachers handle the bullying, and boys think their teachers are doing a poor job of how the bullying is handled
  • Why do kids bully?
    Often to seek attention
    Most likely will continue to bully based off of the reactions of the person they are bullying
    They believe they are popular and think they have the support of others
    They think it’s exciting and helps them gain friends
  • Victims
    Often have poor social skills
    Lack the confidence to seek help
    Blame themselves and believe it is their own fault
    Are desperate to “fit in”
    Will most likely not tell anyone
  • How to deal with bullying
    First avoid focusing on the shortcomings of the victim
    Concentrate in the immediate problem
    Aim for any intervention to help stop the bullying
    Ensure the bully changes their behavior
    Ask people to be aware of the situation and to support the victim
  • Support the victim
    Make sure they have access to a bully free environment
    Use reliable peers, teacher aids, and others as supporters
    Spend time with the victim
    Use the no blame approach which focuses on seeking the support of the peer group
  • The Plan
    The plan is to survey a minimum of 40 West Senior students
    Survey at least 10 students from each grade to get a more accurate conclusion
    Ask questions related to being bullied, witnessing bullying, and what can be done about it
  • The Survey
    I created a 7 question survey which was given to 40 students at West Senior
    10 students from each grade completed the survey to get a more accurate understanding of bullying and how it effects West’s students
  • The Results
    The survey consisted of 5 yes or no questions and 2 short answer questions
    After surveying 40 students at West Senior, about ½ of them claimed to have been bullied
    About 95% of the students said they have witnessed bullying
    About 10% of the students believe that West has a bullying problem
  • The Results Cont.
    Students were then asked if they thought bullies bully to make themselves feel better and because of jealousy, the results showed that all but 6 students answered yes
    Also all but 3 students believe that boys and girls bully differently
  • The Results Cont.
    When asked what the most common form of bullying was, the majority answered cyber bullying because people may feel more confident when they are hidden behind a computer screen
  • What Can Be Done?
    The last question asked what could be done about the bullying in our school
    Answers included standing up for the victim, using the “Let us Know” box, learn to accept people for who they are, more communication, stricter rules, tell adults, and some people believe that West does a good job and handling bullying situations
  • Why I chose this topic
    I chose to focus on the bullying portion of Twisted because I believe that it is something that most people can relate to and are aware of but may not really know how it effects people and how many people are involved
