Creating a supportive and bully-free classroom takes time, energy, and determination. It can’t be done overnight and certainly can’t be done without a ton of effort on the teacher’s part. That’s exactly why a team at the Department of Education created a series of toolkits to help you build a safe and supportive classroom.
It focuses on working to solve the bully problem and then moving onto crafting a long-term plan for a safer school experience for everyone. These modules were designed to work together.
The first focuses on how to identify and effectively intervene during bullying. The second discusses effective strategies to build a classroom climate where bullying is rare.
The DoE recommends using both modules in a short period of time.
Addresses how to identify and effectively intervene when bullying occurs (including tips on de-escalation).
Considers effective strategies to build a classroom climate where bullying is less likely to occur.
