Action against Bullying: Drawing from Experience.
Johnstone, Margaret; And Others
This booklet discusses action against bullying and gives information and practical ideas for the teacher and the school. The introduction explains why bullying should be a concern and how the booklet is to be used. Other sections deal with what bullying is and with anti-bullying action. Also included are four Action on Policy papers that can be used to work towards a practical policy of action against bullying. Action on Policy papers are addressed to the individual administrator and deal with the following topics: a school policy on bullying; publicizing your policy in the school; publicizing your policy to parents and the community; and what happens in your school. Following these papers are six "scenario discussion starters" for teacher groups, designed to illustrate different kinds of bullying for which groups are encouraged to find their own answers or alternative ideas. Subjects of the scenarios are: long-term bullying; supporting the victim; a bully group; what really happened? bully or victim? and "it's a stage she's going through." Information sheets on curriculum materials and ideas for inservice are also included. (NB)
