Bullying in the Girl's World: A School-Wide Approach to Girl Bullying

Overview

Grades 3-8. Provides skill lessons and activities for preventing relational aggression and bullying by girls. The book contains classroom activities, small group counseling sessions, and individual counseling activities. The program's goals are to help young girls become more self-assured, independent, and confident in interacting with others in healthy, helpful ways. Includes reproducible student handouts and sample parent letters.

Relationally aggressive behavior is often motivated by underlying fear and insecurity. The first step to counteracting such behavior is to be aware of the hidden causes. The second step is understanding that it is bullying and it is not acceptable. The third step is building skills for dealing with and/or reducing this behavior. The classroom lessons include stories, activities, and reproducible student worksheets. The small group approach includes surveys, stories, strategies, student assessments, and group activities. The individual counseling section includes situation cards, activities, student worksheets, and a simple problem-solving model.
