Using the Theme of Bullying to Teach about Human Rights in the Social Studies Curriculum: Reports from the Field
Kirman, Joseph M.
McGill Journal of Education, v39 n3 p327-341 Fall 2004
This article argues that bullying is a human rights violation and should be a social studies curriculum concern. It treats bullying not only as a school incident but also as part of any systematic, continuous violence in any context. There is a discussion of legal implications, applicable educational theory, and attempts to deal with bullying in Canada and foreign jurisdictions. Ten classroom lessons present bullying as a social studies issue for teaching about rights. The lessons include history and current events as well as local, national, and international concerns. A supplementary Internet resource section is provided.
