Help Us Bully-Proof Our Classroom!

My students need social skills materials to help them learn how to avoid being a target for bullies.

My Students

As special needs students in a large high school, my students often are the target of bullying. This is largely due to their misunderstanding of social norms and expectations.

My students are 9th and 10th grade students with intellectual disabilities.

They are an awesome group of students, and every day is an adventure in our classroom! All the students really want to be involved in school activities and have friends outside of the special education classroom, but their social skills are a huge barrier. They are frequently bullied by students that see them acting immature or inappropriate. Also, they sometimes join in on bullying their classmates due to peer pressure.

My Project

My class is excited by the opportunity offered by ABC Family to gain resources to prevent bullying! I am requesting a social skills curriculum that teaches students to be accountable for their own behavior, as well as a social skills bingo game and other supplemental social skills materials. These tools will help my students become more adept at interacting with others appropriately. Also, the 10th students will be able to use the materials to do peer mentoring with the 9th graders.

Bullying can be absolutely devastating to any student.

Many factors that lead to bullying cannot be changed (race, gender, socioeconomic status, etc.), so help us change a factor that can! Learning social skills will help reduce bullying for my students.
