Take the Bullies to Task: Using Process Drama to Make a Stand
Baer, Allison L.; Glasgow, Jacqueline N.
English Journal, v97 n6 p79-86 Jul 2008
To "empower students to think and act more effectively" concerning violence and bullying within schools, Allison L. Baer and Jacqueline N. Glasgow suggest close examination and discussion of literature that foregrounds violence and bystander participation. Baer and Glasgow recommend several useful novels for addressing the various roles of bystanders. Additionally, they use process drama as a safe activity to help students creatively and realistically explore problems and solutions when confronted by violence. (Contains 4 figures.)
