Student Assembly Info
Students will learn to identify the exact reactions that are looked for by kids who target others. They will then learn step-by-step how to alter their body-language and control their responses in order to eliminate these reactions and stop future bullying. During the assemblies students will also learn specifically what to do if they are being physically bullied.
Students who are 3rd grade and older will additionally learn how “popular appearing” bullies isolate, control, and manipulate their peers. They will then learn exactly what steps to take in order to stop them.
Staff Assembly Info
Teachers will learn how to intervene without making the situation worse for the targeted child. They will also learn objective methods of identifying the two different types of kids who target, and the two different types of kids who are targeted using the Anonymous Peer Rating Tool. They will then be trained in how to use this information to re-map their classrooms and buses to drastically reduce bullying opportunities between students. Teachers will also learn what parenting styles tend to produce each type of bully and victim behavior.
In addition to this, teachers will be trained in specific techniques that will foster connections between targeted students in their classrooms with healthy, non-bullying peers. They will also be trained step-by-step how to help parents of both kids who target, as well as those being targeted, to assist their children in resolving the bullying problem rather than making it worse. Social bullying and student clusters will also be discussed with specific methods of bringing kids on the social fringes into the social groups.
