According to the National Center for Education Statistics School Crime Supplement survey, 21% of students ages 12-18 reported being bullied at school in the 2014-2015 school year.
In Bullying Prevention for Educators & Staff, users assume the role of a virtual educator in different situations related to bullying incidents. Practice speaking with a class, one-on-one with a student, and with a fellow educator. Users will also practice effective communication techniques in a discussion around biased language, how to engage students who have been targeted, and how to lead a conversation with a peer about encouraging reporting of such incidents. Educators and staff will have access to customized national, local, and school-specific resources in addition to simulation content.
The goal of Bullying Prevention for Educators & Staff is to harness the power of conversation to foster a respectful learning environment free of discrimination and harassment.
- Increase knowledge and awareness of bullying and how to prevent it
- Build skills in leading conversations with students who have been targeted
- Reinforce classroom expectations around biased language and bullying behavior
- Connect students to support
- Understand you school's specific support services and availability
Research shows that with experiential practice, increased emotional engagement and reflective thinking leads to stronger self-efficacy and behavior change.
