This activity with students will explore how all of us, at one time or another, have had to make a decision about whether or not we will intervene or take a stand when we
witness name-calling, bullying or harassment of a friend or a stranger. Often we make these decisions in the moment, reacting to situations as they come up.
In this lesson, students take the time to explore many different situations that could be seen at school and think about how they make decisions around allyship, such as speaking up in the moment, getting help from a caring adult, talking to the person in private or walking away. This activity can be done multiple times using different situations to increase your student’s ability to be an ally.
