This week, third grade students are continuing their work on bullying awareness by thinking about the role bystanders, the people who see bullying happen, play in resolving a bullying situation. As part of the lesson, they are watching a video from an organization called the NED show (you can watch the video by copying this link and pasting it into your browser: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeqQCyQOCPg).
The video uses the term "Upstander" to describe people who do something to help a victim of bullying. It recommends four strategies. They are:
1. Be a Buddy
3. Speak Out
4. Tell Someone
As part of this lesson, students are thinking about how they might use these strategies to help resolve different bullying situations. If you have a moment, ask your child about some of different situations they considered and the strategies they might use to resolve them.
Thank you for your help supporting this important lesson.
