Title: Becoming a Bully Buster
Topics: bully(ing), bullies, conflict resolution, anger management, emotions
Subject: Health, Language Arts
Students work in small teams to research conflicts children sometimes face, and to study effective ways of solving problems. Teams also investigate how their classmates handle difficult issues. Each group uses what they have learned to develop an action plan to help students improve their conflict-resolution skills, reduce disagreements, and encourage cooperation in school. As part of the project, team members participate in discussions, define terms, and create posters illustrating examples of conflict and cooperation. Each student concludes the quest by completing a self-evaluation form.
