into play when deciding how and when to do the right thing Create an action plan about how to handle reporting Dark marker To Report or Not to Report? Scenarios on p.73 The decision to report bullying is sometimes very difficult. Pressure from friends and others to stay quiet, not wanting to

be seen as a snitch or as tattling, fear of retaliation from the person(s) doing the bullying, are all factors that can affect your decision. And because of these factors, sometimes bullying goes unreported. Bullies may say mean things, call names, make fun of, tease, ignore or spread false

rumors about others. ACTIVITY: There are three designated areas of the room where you will find signs. After I read the scenarios, you will decide Yes, you would report it, No you would not report it, or Maybe/Not Sure/ It Depends. After you hear the scenario, please move to the corresponding area of the room where you choice is posted.

EXPLAIN Why did you move to this particular spot? Share your thoughts and ideas Bullying usually happens when an adult is not around. I must learn how to recognize and handle bullies.

situation? 2. Which scenarios seemed to be most controversial or difficult to decide what to do? 3. Were there any situations that you thought were bullying but would not report? Which ones? Why? 4. Were there any situations that you thought were bullying and would report? Which ones? Why?

5. What are the risks of reporting for the bullied student? For the student(s) doing the reporting? 6. What are the benefits of reporting for the bullied student? For the student(s) doing the reporting? for the school as a whole? 7. Why are negative labels such as snitch or rat sometimes used to describe someone who

does the right thing by reporting? What might it be like to be considered a rat by someone who bullies? How might the bullied person feel about you reporting the bullying? Discussion Questions continued 8. We each tend to view situations in a particular way, based on our experiences and personalities. Sometimes we see situations as more clear-cut or have more shades of gray.

With bullying problems, what kinds of situations strike you as more clear-cut? What strike you as being less clear-cut? 9. How does what weve been discussing today relate to our school rule about reporting bullying? To avoid getting bullied, I can walk with confidence, holding my head high, keeping a straight back and a calm face. Bullies are more likely to pick on me if they think I am frightened.

Walk around the school with friends. Be kind and respectful toward other people. Bullies are less likely to approach when I walk around in a group of friends. I need to be aware of my surroundings. Try to avoid the bully by going somewhere else, always staying calm and confident. I can ignore the bully. Bullies want me to act frightened or scared. A bully might continue talking.

I dont need to respond. If the bully continues to hurt me in any way, I can yell NO using a firm voice so others can hear me. I can also say STOP! I DONT LIKE THAT! I can go to a teacher or another adult for help. WRAP UP Create a personal action plan for yourself about how

and when you should report bullying, even when you are uncertain about the situation. Think about what you would do if you feel uncertain whether something has crossed the line. What support system can you rely on to help you put your plan into action? Bullying will not stop unless I stand up against it. I need to make a plan and take action against bullying.

I CAN DO IT!!! Things to Try Sometimes, I might see or hear about a friend being bullied. It feels good to help others. Here is what I can do to help a friend being bullied: 1.Go with my friend to a safer place. 2.Tell the bully to STOP! 3.Go with my friend to tell an adult. 4.Go on my own to tell an adult.
