Intro to Bullying (3 Lesson Plans)

· Begin role playing, audience is students.
· We will begin “class”

· Lesson 1 Bullying (25 minutes)

· Objective: Students will be able to share their bullying stories on paper and fill out the other side of the sheet “What should you do?”. Both of these sheets are less “heavy” than today's bullying survey. We will discuss both of these sheets as a class and I will take volunteers to answer these questions on both sheets.

· Hook: “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” by Eleanor Roosevelt

· I will ask the class to write down what this means to them as their “first five” and take volunteers to share.

· Materials: worksheets, textbook, pencils, agenda
· Procedure:

· Open: Hook 5 minutes

· Body: Students will complete worksheets I have created out of the bullying workbook. We will have a class discussion and share time about their responses and go over the correct answers on the “what should you do” sheet.

· Close: We will list the correct things to do when you are bullied and I will write them on the board.

· Guided Practice: I will go around the room and make sure students are making good progress on their worksheets.

· Closure: Class discussion on what to do when bullied

· Independent Practice: The worksheets will be completed independently.

· Assessment: The completed worksheets

· Differentiated Instruction: I will help students who are struggling come up with examples for their bullying stories and correct answers for what to do when bullied.

· *If we have too much time we will begin reading Chapter 7 of the text. Show the Health textbook section on bullying and review it.

· Short Discussion on Lesson 1, what went well? What would you do differently?

· Lesson 2 (25 minutes)

· Lesson 2 bullying

· Objective: students will be able to understand and describe conflict. Students will be able to define prejudice.

· Hook: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” - Marianne Williamson

· We will talk through this as a class.

· Materials needed: textbook, worksheet with questions, pencil, overhead projector

· Procedure:

· Open: Hook 5 minutes

· Body: We will define the word conflict and begin round robin reading of lesson 1 of chapter 7. Pages 202 – 205. We will answer questions 1-7 on page 205 on a piece of paper.

· We will then go over the answers, students will work alone.

· After this students can get into groups of 2 and discuss the bullying worksheet (other side from today's worksheet). They will then present their findings together.

· Close: They will then present their findings together.

· Independent Practice: questions will be completed alone

· Assessment: paper with answers on it.

· Discuss the lesson, what went well? What would you do differently if you were to teach this?

Final Lesson Bullying

Lesson: final bullying lesson

Objective: Students will be able to define bullying. Students will be able to remember what to do if they are bullied or see someone else bullied.

Hook: Quotes: “What we see depends mainly on what we look for” - John Lubbock

Materials: textbooks, homework from Friday on tracking bullying on TV, paper, pencil


Open: Quote, write what it means to you. Then we will discuss it.

Body: Who watched a show and saw bullying? What did you see. Class discussion.

Begin reading page 213 of the text on bullying. We will begin round robin reading. On a piece of paper students will write down “what are the 3 types of bullying?” and give examples of each kind.

Students will write three things to do when bullied and why they are good things to do. Students will write three things not to do when being bullied and why they are not good to do.

We will share this info as a class and then move forward with our reading if there is time.

Closure: I will ask if there is anything else students would like to learn regarding bullying or conflict. This will determine if this is the final lesson or not.

Independent Practice: the written work students will be doing.

Assessment: the written work and sharing with the class.

Discussion: What went well? What would you do differently?
Break: 15 minutes

Part 3 – Resource Links


Handout to take away from Seminar
Create a Bully Free Classroom Guide

1. Have a class discussion about bullying. What are different types of bullying? Ask “What kind of classroom do you want to have? What can everyone do to make this happen?
2. Have students set their own rules so they learn to manage their own behaviors.
3. Write the rules on a poster headed “Our Class Rules” and have everyone sign their name.
4. Post the rules in your classroom where everyone can see them.
5. Make a poster announcing “This is a Bully Free Classroom” and display it in the hall outside the classroom.
6. Have students visit other classrooms and encourage them to become bully free. They can also meet with the principal and ask him or her to announce that your whole school is committed to being bully free.
