Common Props for the Classroom that promote Bullying Prevention Discussions

Our newest workshop provides attendees ideas and techniques on how to use common props to start and promote bullying prevention discussions in the classrooms.

11,000 Voices

This workshop will explore a 2011 study from Penn State of 11,800 U.S. students in grades 5-12.  The study was designed to solicit students’ perceptions about how to reduce peer mistreatment in our schools and to tell adults what works and what does not work in bullying prevention.  This presentation will inform those who work with students about some of the common mistakes and misconceptions held by adults when addressing bullying and what steps students would like us to take to make things better. (90 minute presentation)

School - Student Connectedness

School Connectedness is the belief by students that adults and peers in the school care about their learning as well as about them as individuals. This workshop will provide researched based strategies that will increase school and student connectedness. Students are more likely to engage in healthy behaviors and succeed academically when they feel connected to school. Research has demonstrated a strong relationship between school connectedness and educational outcomes, including school attendance, staying in school longer, and higher grades and classroom test scores.

Effective and Energetic Classroom Meetings

The most effective component of your bullying prevention program is the weekly classroom meetings between the students and their teacher.

Learning objectives include: a review of learning modalities, state changers, selection techniques, sample classroom meetings and energizers. (3 1/2 hour presentation) This is a "must see" training program for schools utilizing class meetings as a core component of their bullying prevention program.

Children who bully others can turn into antisocial adults and are far more likely than others to commit crimes, batter their spouses, abuse their children—and produce another generation of children who bully. Here’s what you can learn in this 90 minute workshop:

· Learn why bullying is an abuse; 
· Develop awareness of personal attitudes about children who are being bullied; 
· Gain an awareness of personal attitudes about children who bully others;

Managing Your School's Bullying Prevention Program

Managing your school’s bullying prevention project is a performance issue based on knowledge. This seminar introduces a knowledge set that will help you better manage the bullying prevention project in order to achieve the desired outcome. Specific issues such as project authority, leadership, people skills, and stakeholder communication strategies will be covered. Project management is a practice that requires integration of a great deal of knowledge. However, project management is not just about knowledge, but also about what you can do with it.

(90 minute presentation)

Bullying Prevention Risk Management and Legal Exposure

This session will discuss some landmark federal and state case law and the impact made on schools. Strategies to deal with bullying both from a legal and ethical perspective will be suggested and are intended only to promote further discussion with your school board attorneys. This course does not provide legal advice and should not be a substitute for working closely with your local school board attorneys to address bullying behaviors. 
Not following policy, not knowing what legal responsibilities are required of educators who see bullying are just two reasons that educators are finding themselves legally vulnerable.
