Introduction: Managing Classroom Bullying Behaviors (01:10)
Bullying in the classroom is not always obvious, but is insidious. This program is about managing bullying in the classroom.
What is Bullying (04:25)
Bullying involves not just unwanted behavior, but a power imbalance. Bullying is sometimes hidden in everyday school culture of sarcastic, throw-away lines. Bullying can cause long-term problems for bully and target.
The Put-Down (03:20)
Our culture normalizes put-downs. Many put-downs are non-verbal. Many focus attention on an area of insecurity.
Managing Put-Downs (04:37)
Create clear rules and definitions on classroom put-downs. Use non-verbal responses to silence the perpetrator and follow up privately to avoid drawing attention to the victim. Strong relationships with students help.
Teacher Behavior as a Model (05:16)
When a teacher uses sarcasm, it sets an example for the rest of the class. Teachers should avoid judging students as "justifiably" bullied.
Educational Consequences of Bullying (01:08)
Bullying lessens students' willingness to take risks and reduces learning.
Available Responses to Bullying (03:37)
Punishment is appropriate in extreme bullying cases, but can be difficult in ambiguous cases and can lead to retaliation. Another approach is to work to create empathy in bullies.
Summary: Managing Classroom Bullying (00:51)
Classroom bullying includes subtle put-downs. Teachers need to quickly stop bullying, and avoid modeling bullying behavior.
