Bullying Prevention Lesson "Just Kidding" w 3 video links PBIS
Amazon.com Description of “Just Kidding”: “A rare look at emotional bullying among boys from the best-selling author of My Secret Bully.
D.J.'s friend Vince has a habit of teasing D.J. and then saying, Just kidding!" as if it will make everything okay. It doesn't, but D.J. is afraid that if he protests, his friends will think he can't take a joke. With the help of his father, brother, and an understanding teacher, D.J. progresses from feeling helpless to taking positive action, undermining the power of two seemingly harmless words. Trudy Ludwig takes another look at relational aggression, the use of relationships to manipulate and hurt others, this time from the boy's point of view.”
Bullying prevention is a large and necessary component of every counseling program. I do many lessons each year teaching various bullying prevention techniques and how to deal with bullying.
Using this presentation for your guidance lesson, you can easily help students to identify relational bullying behaviors of mean teasing and calling names. It also helps students to tell the difference between “good” teasing and “mean” teasing.
This presentation has 19 slides and includes a link to a video of the book, “Just Kidding” being read aloud. The video runs approximately 8 minutes. It also has links to TWO OTHER videos that are directly related and are appropriate for older student audiences.
Comprehension questions are included, as well as ways to deal with teasing and relational bullying.
I would schedule 30-45 minutes for this lesson.
The PowerPoint is customizable and has a master slide that can be copied to make your own slides to personalize the lesson for your students and teaching style. The presentation includes both animations and transitions to hold your students' interest. Make your lesson come alive for your students and help them to connect to the concept in a fun way that will help them to remember the important lessons you need for them to remember.
