|BULLYING PREVENTION LESSON PLANS--Middle School--Available in Middle School Kit only. May be printed for all personnel in the purchasing school.|
Middle school teachers and counselors will find the Bullying Prevention Lesson Plans for Middle Schools to be a powerful pro-active instructional anti-bullying resource with an excellent scope and sequence of 121 lessons--30 plus lessons at every grade level. Each teacher should teach at least one lesson each week. All of the lessons are interactive 30 to 40 minute lessons and purposefully have a heavy focus on anti-bullying content. Almost every lesson has three or more of the following components: Learner Outcome(s); Preparation and Materials; Activities; Journaling; and Go Further. The associated handouts and worksheets appear at the end of each lesson. The design of the lessons is based on effective teaching and learning principles. They are so powerful, they change lives, and maximize efforts to change the climate of the schools, as well as help create a “telling environment.” One unique feature of the lesson plans is the “Parent Chat” (English and Spanish) included in many of the lessons that are sent home with the students. Parents/Guardians use this material to review with their child what he/she was taught that day at school. These are designed to reinforce learning but also to educate parents/guardians and perhaps influence the home environment. After discussing the content of the Parent Chat, a parent/guardian and the child sign it and it is returned to the teacher the next day, unless otherwise specified.
