Nippin' Hostility in the Bud: Empowering All.
Jones, Bennie; Nakanishi, Rochelle; Brockney-Abbott, Lisa; Dillon, Hedda
This brief handout set begins with a scenario of a baseball game, during which one child swings a bat at another child. Hostility in the classroom and in life is a daily game. More than 30% of new teachers leave within the first five years of teaching; the primary cause is dissatisfaction with student discipline, hostile behavior of children, and inability to control the class. "What is a Bully?" provides characteristics of bullies. "Empowering the Teacher" provides behavior management skills information. "Empowering Victims" discusses skills that victims can develop to stop abusive behavior. "Empowering Bullies" provides insight into the needs of bullies and procedures for turning around the negative behavior. "Empowering the Class" discusses peer influence and conflict management teams. A quote from Ennis Cosby and a picture of him with Bill Cosby is provided. Recommended readings, a guide to resources, references, and cartoons are included. (EMK)
