The fact is, students don't want to be bullies, but for many they feel it's their only option in a given situation. By first understanding students' experiences, teachers and other educators can help students discover other options for dealing with problematic situations that avoid bullying, aggression, and harassment. The authors provide ideas, strategies, and activities that promote respect, responsibility, and tolerance. The authors-a school psychologist and an elementary school teacher-interviewed dozens of students and educators and have tested their strategies in dozens of schools. The book includes numerous easy-to-implement activities along with programs and curricula appropriate for working with individual students, classes, and whole schools.
This accessible and jargon-free resource includes first-person quotes from students and teachers, successful stories of students overcoming problems of bullying and disrespect, frequently asked questions, reflective questions, examples of student work, and a glossary.
