I'm looking forward to blogging more in-depth about recent conversations and activities my students and I have been engaged in to address bullying in our school. For now, I wanted to share a recent news article that was published about some of the work we've been doing in my 10th grade English classes. It in part involves reframing how we think about bullying. In elementary grades, students talk more directly and more often about kindness and empathy. At the upper grades, we focus more on the negative behaviors of bullying. But what if we started to talk more about empathy and kindness at the secondary level? What might change?
