This resource came about from an incident where a fight occured and a large number of students stood around and filmed it, instead of stopping the fight or notifying an adult. I thought it was a great opportunity to open up the discussion about fighting as "entertainment".
- Step-by-Step guide for how to respond to fighting in a restorative way
- bilingual (English/Spanish) family contact letter for bystanders
- BBC News article about the dangers of fighting and sample reading prompts, and finally
- A community Circle lesson plan “The Allure of Fighting” prompts students to think about what aspects of our culture spread and promote the message that fighting is entertaining (social media, YouTube, Instagram, friends/family, etc.)
