Bullies: Turning Around Negative Behaviors

Bullies: Turning Around Negative Behaviors

Introduction

Bullying in school is usually a hidden problem. The teaching staff typically is unaware of how widespread bullying is in their building and may not even recognize the seriousness of bullying incidents that do come to their attention. Teachers who are serious about reducing bullying behaviors must (1) assess the extent of the bullying problem in their classrooms, (2) ensure that the class understands what bullying is and why it is wrong, (3) confront any student engaged in bullying in a firm but fair manner, and (4) provide appropriate and consistent consequences for bullying. This issue of NASET’s Practical Teacher will address how to turn around negative behaviors by bullies.
