Students define bullying and observe and describe some of the consequences to victims, bystanders, and the whole community. Students recognize that bullying behavior is a civil rights issue that must be addressed for their community to be fair and safe for all. They create a survey and poll members of their school and family communities to determine a snapshot of the status of bullying.
In this lesson, learners will explore and address the following questions: Who are the minority voices of the past and how has the civil society sector stepped in to protect their rights? What actions were effective? What public policies are in place to protect them? Who are the bullied today and what policies and practices should be in place to protect them? Why is it our responsibility as people with civic virtue to take action?
Youth utilize the persuasive power of oral, written and visual media as instruments of change. They make a plan as empowered and responsible members of the civil society to take action to prevent bullying behavior while being sensitive to the people involved, from the victim to the bystander to the bully.
