About This Lesson

Students discuss what it means to be a bystander to bullying and why it is often difficult
to intervene and support peers who are affected by bullying. They brainstorm ways to overcome
these challenges and are provided with specific strategies for “taking a stand” against name-calling
and bullying. Students then apply these principles by writing responses to advice column letters,
role-playing solutions, and writing about real-life bystander situations with which they have been
confronted. Aligned to Common Core State Standards: SL.6.1 , SL.7.1 , SL.8.1

Always good to have students actually practice what they would do if they were a by-stander to a bullying situation. If they have practices what they would do they will feel more comfortable intervening.
