Bullying

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

Who gets bullied? Someone who's really tall or someone who's overweight? Someone who does well in school or someone who does poorly? Someone who is a specific race or sexuality? Someone who speaks with an accent?

Who does the bullying? Someone who is cool, mean or thoughtless? Or perhaps it's an invisible, online bully? And what exactly constitutes bullying? Bullying can be physical and/or emotional. Physical bullying includes hitting, punching, and fighting. Emotional bullying includes gossip, shutting someone out, name-calling and cyber-bullying.

In recognition of Bulling Prevention Month, use this lesson plan to help your students explore bullying as a failure of democracy, which is the political system we have that guarantees everyone equal rights. Your class will also think about how young people can support or fail to support democracy. LESSON PLAN: http://to.pbs.org/1Dyy61P
