My students need a copy of "Bullying in Schools", a copy of "School and Bullying" and a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.
Every day thousands of kids wake up afraid to go to school. Bullying is a problem that affects millions of students. Everyone is worried, not just the kids on its receiving end. Yet because parents, teachers, and other adults don't always see it, they may not understand how extreme bullying can get.
I have twenty-nine wonderful students.
My students are growing in an inner-city neighborhood where they see how gangs bully their streets. Bullying can be found in every school in the country. It is all too often part of the way young people interact in our society. Every school must recognize the extent and impact and take steps to stop it from happening. When bullying is ignored or downplayed, pupils will suffer ongoing torment and harassment. My fourth grade students sometimes can become cruel to each other but with help of these books they can become educated on the topic. They can become peacemakers for the school and their community. They will love reading "Bullying in Schools" and the other anti-bullying books.
Studies show that people who are abused by their peers are at risk for mental health problems, such as low self-esteem, stress, depression, or anxiety. They may also think about suicide more. Numerous high-school students have died when stalking, threats, and attacks went unreported and the silence gave the bully license to become more and more violent. Bullying can cause life long damage to victims. A school's failure to deal with bullying endangers the safety of all its pupils by allowing a hostile environment to interfere with learning. There is clear, unambiguous evidence that school action can dramatically reduce the incidence of bullying. I plan to introduce the book "Bullying in Schools" to my class and the other anti-bullying books to educate my students on how to stop bullying. I'm also planning to use the BlackBerry tablet research more on the cause and effects of bullying in school. The students will do the research and present to class their findings.
Successfully dealing with bullying involves building a genuine community within the class and school.
Everyone accepts they have the right to be free from harassment and that they have the responsibility to support their weaker and more vulnerable peers. I will use "Bullying in Schools" to create a safe environment. I need your help so I can provide books that will help my students to learn how to deal with bullies in and out of school. Your donations will be greatly appreciated.Read More
