How Teachers Deal with Bullying: Best Practices for Identifying and Dealing with Bullying Behaviors among High School Students
Gleason, Katherine
Online Submission
Today's youth are in a social environment where being the brunt of jokes and harassment of their peers is an accepted and encouraged norm. It is not exactly clear what teachers do to deal with bullying in their classrooms. Much of the research on bullying has focused on elementary and middle school level students. Little is known about bullying at the high school level. My research investigated how teachers, administrators and guidance staff members have dealt with bullying behaviors and situations in the high school setting. The research shows that bullying behaviors are more prevalent in the school but in new behaviors that teachers are ill equipped to manage. It is clear that bullying behavior is on the increase and more needs to be done to teach the high school faculty and staff how to identify and deal with bullying behavior among students. Appended to this document are: (1) Appendix A: Letter of Consent; and (2) Appendix B: Interview Questions.
