Transcript of Problem Based Learning

In the South Bend School Corporation, the current bullying programs are diverse, are targeting the perpetrators, and are largely put into action after the incident occurs.
(From our experiences:)
It is more focused on the bully from what we have seen.
Each school handles it differently
typically one sided
It is handled more as a punishment (after the fact) rather than teaching to prevent.

Each school handles bullying differently.
Different types of bullying.
Their programs are focused on the victims more than the perpetrators.

Develop system that targets both victim and perpetrator.
Pick a current bullying program and force everyone to follow it strictly.
Let each school handle bullying in its own way.
Involve parents and school staff.
Focus on education/prevention of bullying
Focus on just perpetrators
Keeping the same system

a. The above possibilities are what we need to know and are in agreement with our list of solutions.
b. Our hope is to find factual knowledge of bullying to assist us in finding a more permanent and positive solution.
Bullying is a major problem in schools today. South Bend School Corporation recognizes this and wants to implement some programming to address bullying. The perception is that much of the programming that is currently being done is targeted at serving the victims of bullying. SBSC would like to have some input from you on the feasibility of programming to address the root causes of bullying in the perpetrators. SBSC has asked that you study this problem and report back on the viability of implementing a new bullying program targeted at perpetrators. In particular, they want to better understand the problem, learn whether it is feasible or desirable to target a program at perpetrators, and get some ideas on effective interventions for this project.
The Problem
What do we Know?
Exploring the Problem
3. Problem Statement
Possible Solutions
Action To Be Taken Timeline
What do we have to know to solve the problem?
a. What current programs exist, how accurate they are, and whats being utilized.
b. How each school handles bullying.
What do we do to solve the problem?
How do we rank these possibilities?
How does this relate to our possible solutions?
a. We will conduct research involving schools in the South Bend School Corporation specifically targeting how they handle bullying. NEED:
the demographics of the schools and comparing it to their bullying data.
Quick Survey (easy to answer in any amount of time)
1. How does your school handle bullying?
2. Do you feel the school focuses more on the victim or perpetrators?
3. Do you spend more time addressing the issues of bullying before or after an incident occurs?
4. Would your school benefit from a better bullying plan? If so, what would it need to include or involve?
a. Collecting demographics from the schools will be manageable (Chen, G. 2011).
b. The possibility of collecting bullying data from the schools will be difficult and very unlikely.
c. Social workers, counselors, and principals may not have time or may not take our questions seriously.
d. Data may be very spread out: Some schools may want help and others may not.
In the South Bend School Corporation, the current bullying programs are diverse, are targeting the perpetrators, and are largely put into action after the incident occurs.
1. Acceptance of problem & consistent training to solve it.
2. Implementing and following the programs that exist or agree to change.
3. Equality for both victim and perpetrator.
4. Viable & feasible if everyone is on board.
