Dealing with Bullying and Harrassment
|This booklet outlines a whole school approach to dealing with bullying and harassment. It includes a comprehensive checklist to guide policy and practice.|
Facing facts: for use in a Health class
Students define and give examples of different types of bullying and harassment, and consider the effects of bullying on victims, perpetrators and onlookers. They identify common barriers to seeking help or taking protective action. They are equipped to research bullying in their own school and use interactive exercises to develop help-seeking and assertiveness.
Giving voice: for use in an English class
Students explore the language of bullying, and look at forms of bullying perpetuated at different levels of society. They use group work and participatory exercises to read, write and discuss poetry, stories and newspaper items, exploring the effects of bullying and possibilities for protective action.
Defining moments: for use in a Drama class
Students explore the body language of status and power, and identify and enact common human responses to messages of welcome or rejection. They also use a range of dramatic devices to depict and examine stories and experiences of oppression, and prepare a performance piece around the theme of bullying.
