Transcript of Bullying

What you should do:
What is bullying?
: "Harassment, Intimidation, Bullying"
What are the IMS rules about bullying?
We will not bully others.
We will try to help students who are bullied.
We will try to include students who are left out.
If we know that someone at school is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and an adult at home.
What are the different types of bullying?

Types of behaviors include:
Any gesture, or
Any written, verbal, or physical act, or
any electronic communication

It can be a SINGLE incident or a SERIES of incidents that take place on or off school grounds. (24/7) !!!!
Motivation for behavior:
Any actual OR perceived characteristic
Types of characteristics:
race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin origin, gender, sexual identity, or mental/physical/sensory disability
Physical Bullying
involves real bodily contact between a bully and his or her victim for the purpose of intimidation or control over the victim.
Examples: kicking biting, punching, scratching, or wrestling the victim until he is unable to retaliate.
occurs when someone uses language to gain power over his or her peers
may make use of relentless insults and teasing as a way to bully
examples: he or she may make fun of a peer's lack of physical abilities, may tease a peer for being "dumb" or a "nerd" or may call someone names based on his or her appearance.
this type of bullying may be harder to identify because the attacks often occur when an adult is not present.
Verbal Bullying
Emotional Bullying
refers to the cases where a person is made to feel isolated and ridiculed
this can be done through ignoring, mocking, or teasing.
examples include: not letting someone sit with you at lunch, purposely ignoring someone when they speak to you, telling others not to speak to someone, or telling other people that someone is "weird"
bullying that takes place using electronic technology
electronic devices includes cell phones, computers, tablets, social media, text messaging, websites, and email.
examples: mean texts/emails, rumors posted on social networks, and embarrassing pictures or videos.
Once you say something electronically, you can NEVER take it back.
If you are a victim of bullying...
What you shouldn't do:
Tell the bully to stop.
Notify your teacher, counselor, or another trusted adult.
If you are being bullied online, do not reply. Instead, tell your parents.
Fight back physically.
Think it is your fault.
Keep it to yourself.
Stop coming to school
a person who is aware of a bullying situation that is going on by witnessing it or hearing about it.
What should a bystander do?
Do not simply watch it happen. Walk away, and go get an adult.
Do not react emotionally- do not laugh and giggle.
Deflect rumors by telling positive truths about the victim.
Offer support and friendship.
You can report bullying anonymously. Nobody ever has to know that it was you who told.
Is it bullying? You decide.
Situation 1:
Melissa and Caroline get in an argument. During the argument, Melissa convinces all of her friends not to speak to or hang out with Caroline anymore. They make Caroline sit alone at lunch and point and laugh at her? Is this bullying?
Situation 2:
Everyday, when Brandon walks out of class, Brian knocks Brandon's books out of his hands, calls him a dork, and laughs. Brandon asks him to stop and Brian doesn't listen. Is this bullying?
What is bullying? -- Conflict vs. Bullying
Conflict: a disagreement that happens when people want different things. The people involved in a conflict have equal power to solve the problem. They are not purposely trying to hurt each other.
Bullying: unfair and one-sided. It happens when someone keeps hurting, frightening, threatening, or leaving someone out on purpose.
Situation 3:
Sarah and Elizabeth are hanging out on Friday night. Sarah wants to go to the movies, but Elizabeth wants to go ice-skating. They get into an argument over which activity to do. Sarah ends up going home. Sarah and Elizabeth apologize to one another on Monday morning.
This is emotional bullying. Melissa is making Caroline feel isolated and like an outcast.
This is physical bullying when Brian knocks the books out of Brandon's hands. It is also verbal bullying when Brian calls Brandon a dork and ignores his requests for him to stop.
This is normal peer conflict. Both people involved have equal power in the relationship. They take responsibility for what they did wrong, and are eager to resolve the conflict so that they can start having fun again.
