Classroom teachers, counselors, coaches, and administrators will find 37 practical, easy-to-use lesson plans to empower teens with the strategies and skills they need to handle bullying situations. The lessons can be blended into existing curricula or taught as stand-alone activities.
As part of a positive behavior support model, counselors, mentors, and others who work with at-risk students can use the lessons to supplement secondary intervention efforts. Topics include how to identify the players (bullies, bystanders, and victims), how to respond to bullying in common areas (hallways and parking lots) and at school events (dances and athletic events), and how to use social skills to change behaviors and attitudes. Using these exercises, educators can increase students' awareness about bullying behaviors, teach them problem solving skills, and encourage them to reflect on their own thoughts, words an actions. An enclosed CD allows making copies of the worksheets, handouts and social skill posters included in the lessons. 112 pgs.
