Since relational aggression is more indirect and covert than physical aggression, it is oftentimes more difficult to detect and verify by adults. In the current study we will compare the difference between adults' and students' perceptions of the type, frequency, and nature of bullying. Instead of just focusing on the teachers, we plan to include observations from the support, administrative, and custodial staff at Alliance Middle School.
Ultimately, our goal is to use the data to assist Alliance Middle School in taking a closer look at key issues associated with bullying on their campus. Activities

Cyber bullying:
•43% of teens have been victims of cyberbullying in the last year.
•81% of youth said that others cyberbully because they think it’s funny.
•Almost 80% of teens said that they either did not have parental rules about internet use or found way around the rules.
Bullying Girls Together Bullying Defined:

Bullying is an act of repeated aggressive behavior in order to intentionally hurt another person, physically or mentally. Bullying is characterized by an individual behaving in a certain way to gain power over another person.
General bullying:
• American Medical Association- study of over 15,000 6th-10th graders estimates that about 3.7 million youths engage in & more than 3.2 million are victims of, moderate or serious bullying each year.
•Over two-thirds of students believe that schools respond poorly to bullying, with a high percentage of students believing that adult help is infrequent and ineffective.
•41% of students believe that teachers do not try to stop bullying in schools.
•Bullying is the most common form of violence in our society; between 15% and 30% of students are bullies or victims. Verbal:
•85% of boys and 78% of girls reported some verbal harassment in middle school
•The average middle school student experiences at least one verbal harassment per day; this declines to two harassments every three days for boys and once every two days for girls by high school. Types of Bullying: Activities Mount Union Students Worked On:
You will need to interview a member (preferably a female) of the Mount Union faculty/staff/community.
1.What is your role at Mount Union? (e.g., Provide a description of your job.)
2.How did you enter your respective profession? (e.g., Where did you go to college? Why did you select your career path?)
3.What path brought you to Mount Union?
4.What, if any, challenges did you face in your life? (These could be personal, social, physical, academic, financial, etc. challenges that were faced in childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, etc.)
5.How did these challenges affect your career path or any other aspect in your current life?
6.What inspired you to follow your goals (even in the face of challenges)?
7.What advice can you give a young (middle school) student about facing adversity and achieving your goals?
Interview on Ambition: ~Questions~ You will reflect on your own experiences during middle and/or high school.
