For The Birds
Example of Bullying
An example of an extreme case of bullying involves a young thirteen year old girl from Missouri, Megan Taylor Meier. She was a typical teenage girl that had self-esteem issues when it came to her weight. She opened herself a MySpace account and met a 16 year old boy. They would talk and become friends, but would never meet. Sometime later, the boy decided he would start bullying her and telling her things like, “The world would be a better place without you.” Less than thirty minutes later, Megan was found in her closet, she had hung herself. It was a terrible tragedy that happens more often then you may think due to bullying.

Pixar's "For the Birds"
The birds don't speak in the film, but what do you think they would say if they could speak English? Create your own conversations between the birds using complete sentences.
1. Bullying is the use of superior power (physical, social, or verbal) to intentionally harm another person over time for no reason. It involves isolation and humiliation. I think it is important that you mention the necessary inclusion of audacity. I encourage people to include that in their definition of bullying.
1. Bullying is an imbalance of power. It addresses consistency and intent as well. Those three must be present in order for it to actually be considered bullying. Also, there is a big difference between teasing and bullying and although most kids are being teased, they believe they are being bullied.
2. We use a conflict resolution wheel that the district has adopted. I travel between classrooms and grade levels and give lessons on bullying as well. Every other week these lessons are provided. I make sure to address conflict resolution at least twice a week throughout my presentations.
2. We advise students to stay away from bullying “hot spots”, which are certain places that a bully is likely to pick on someone at. Also, we like to describe students as targets and not victims. The word victim carries such a negative connotation and we try to use positive language when referring to the parties involved. We also advise students to be more assertive with their body language and actions. We teach them how to look confident [at our presentations]. That can go a long way when it comes to combating a bully. One of the most important tactics we teach to the targets is to surround themselves with a “nucleus of friends.” This is the number one line of defense in our opinion
3. Yes. Girls are more likely to gossip in order to harm another girl’s reputation. They are also likely to be a bully to another student for a longer period of time. Boys, although they do gossip as well, are more direct with their abuse.
3. Yes. Boys tend to be more physical, forceful, and verbal. Girls tend to focus on excluding another female. They engage in more “social bullying”. They equally report cases, though.
