Based on the highly popular You Can Handle Them All book, this special edition is a systematic, easy-to-use guide for educators to help them define and successfully handle 27 different bullying and cyberbullying behaviors.
Since bullies don’t conform to a single profile or harass targets in the same way, this model is designed to help educators address a spectrum of bullying behaviors—both traditional and online. By working from the same foundation, members of a school team can ask, what kind of bully are we facing? Then they can apply specific solutions to deal with the aggressive behavior. It is important to know how the bully and his or her targets are situated in the social fabric of school life. Otherwise we may focus exclusively on obvious cliques, while lesser-known individuals or groups perpetuate harmful behavior.
Every state and school district has policies either pending or on the books that prohibit the harassment, intimidation, and bullying of students. This resource and supplemental material available for teachers, administrators, support staff, and parents by The Master Teacher are intended to complement existing state and local policies. This book:
