Bullying and harassment in our schools is reaching epidemic proportions. Although best practice tells us that to halt this steady growth we must approach the problem from a systemic standpoint, the typical classroom teacher does not have the ability to influence such a decision. This course will assist educators in recognizing what they might do to halt the progression of these negative statistics and increase the culture and climate of their classroom. In an eight-week format, students are guided through various activities including reading, viewing, reflection, and investigations to further increase their knowledge and awareness of topics related to bullying and harassment in our schools.
