Don't Be a Bystander: Teaching Kids How to Stand Up for Victims of Bullying

We’ve all been in a situation where we witnessed bullying behavior. Think about how you reacted. Did you speak up or take action? Were you in shock so you simply stayed out of it? Did you get mad at yourself later because you didn’t say or do anything?

These situations are hard for adults and they are even more difficult for our students. So often our students are told to stand up to bullying. We encourage them to speak out against it, or we ask them a million questions about what they did when they witnessed it, and then we tell them what they should have done instead.

A better solution is to give students the opportunity to practice what they might do when they witness bullying behavior. This empowers them to take action instead of being a bystander.

This product covers five strategies students can use. I’ve provided an explanation of each strategy along with suggested dialogue or action. There is also a poster for each strategy to display in the classroom.
