  • When it's time of the year to go back to school, many kids dread ending the freedom and summertime activities. While these feelings are common for most kids, some don't look forward to going back to school because they are teased and harassed by bullies.As parents, we may not always know when a bully strikes our innocent kids. And sometimes, they might just keep their mouth shut about what happened, or they may even ask for help but nobody would bother for the reason that the bully might include him or her on his list.As a way of helping everyone especially the parents, who find it quite hard to manage time, I found this great Safety Service which featured a safety app which gets me connected to a Safety Network or escalate my call to the nearest 911 when needed, it has other cool features that are helpful for your kids with just a press of a Panic Button. #SafekidZone, Check it here: http://bit.ly/ZjYchC

No notes for slide
  • This slide will remain up until the whole group is seated. Have 1 or 2 leaders handing out note cards at students enter the room. Remember: Time is precious. The leaders need to reign the group in quickly.
  • Set the timer! Monitor the groups in case they get stuck or are off-task Move to next slide to prompt the speakers/groups for more information
  • The speaker will come up and ask for the top 5 bullying behaviors, listing them on the board/paper/screen posted. To begin, most people will put varying versions of hitting. Move to next slide…
  • This is a follow-up page to the starting TOP Bully behaviors/traits… this should be done AFTER whole group has started sharing Show “Aggressive vs. Passive” video Ask – what did you see in the 2 nd one that is not on this list?
  • Work with students on having them answer the questions posted. Answer ideas are provided below. "Cyberbullying" is when a child, preteen or teen is tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated, embarrassed or otherwise targeted by another child, preteen or teen using the Internet, interactive and digital technologies or mobile phones. Direct Attacks Instant Messaging/Text Messaging Harassment 2. Stealing Passwords 3. Blogs 4. Web Sites 5. Sending Pictures through E-mail and Cell Phones 6. Internet Polling 7. Interactive Gaming 8. Sending Malicious Code 9. Sending Porn and Other Junk E-Mail and IMs 10. Impersonation Remember: Bullying is all about power! www.stopcyberbullying.org
  • Use pages in Code of Conduct to help with this section. P. 35: Intimidation P. 41: Bullying Theses are the Key words and ideas students will probably come up with  Section A: Fear of harm, emotional or physical OR substantial property damage Section B: Creating a {negative} environment. Word assistance: Pervasiveness: Being spread throughout (The pervasive odor of onions filled the house) Persistence: Continual (My persistent nagging drove my sister nuts!) Power Differential: POWER one has over another – could be sue to intelligence level, popularity, $$$... Section C: Interfering with a safe environment Section D: Perpetuating bullying… that means being a bystander . If you do NOTHING about what you see/hear, you can be just as liable as the bully! YES! Being an active bystander means that you are susceptible to the consequences just like the bullies themselves!!!
  • These are NOT to be answered… yet. Just getting the audience thinking…
  • Read aloud. Pause for about 3 seconds after before moving to next slide
  • Request that groups discuss this question for 1-minute
  • No writing needed. Walk through groups until 3 minutes are up Whole group share for 3-5 minutes When returning to seat as a whole, students will remain in the same group cluster
  • Give them a moment.
  • After each option, if it has not been discussed yet, ask students what each would look like or what someone would say/do as an example
  • Hand bully stickers to homeroom teachers at this point. Direct them to give these to their students and they are for inside their agendas, on the plastic pocket in the back.
  • Show How to Report a Bully skit
  • They should point out the student being a Good Citizen when they helped the other pick up the dropped books. Picked up Dropped books
  • Remove “snitching” from our vocabulary Safety is our goal. Remind them that there are more victims and bystanders than there are bullies – OUTNIUMBER them and let everyone know that bullying is not acceptable here at Redding
  • If a student says they were surprised that Bullying isn’t just Teasing say, “You’re right! Let’s take a look at an example.” If a student does NOT bring up B vs. T, then a leader needs to bring it up with something like, “A lot of people like to use the ‘We were just joking’ statement when seen teasing someone. Often, though, teasing crosses the line into Bullying.”
  • After Question 2, have one leader write the information on a piece of chart paper. Head towards getting 5 suggestions Remind them that sometimes helping someone is scary/frightening. But put that fear aside for a second and thing of the victim… you WANT to help them somehow…
  • Read aloud – pause for 3 seconds – ask what they think it means. (this lead into the next slide)
  • Time out around 3 minutes for section leader to discuss this. Share with the start of the next slide.
  • There are responses a victim/bystander can give to de-escalate a bullying situation.
  • Now ask this. Remind them of what they saw/talked about today, the charts that are hanging in the room, their discussions…
  • Keep towards end of 7/8 put at beginning of 6th
  • As they leave, thank the teachers for bringing their classes. Thank the students for being well-behaved.
