Lesson 31: Review and Application Lets revisit what we have learned about bullying and being an empowered bystander. I’m going to read bullying situations and ask a few questions about them.
Scenario # 1 As Sara (who is obese and slow) walks up the steps, Justin who is in a hurry, screams – “Sara, you’re such a fat cow, hurry up!” Two students with Justin say, “That’s right, you’re such a cow” and moo at Sara. All the students who are listening, laugh. Other students try to ignore what is happening and don’t say or do anything.
Is Sara bullied? Probably, it is obvious they intended to hurt Sara. However, according to the definition of bullying we need to know the answer to the following questions: Did they hurt Sara? Is she a repeated target? Do the students have power over Sara?
Is Justin a student who bullies? Probably, but we need to know if he intended to hurt and to have power and control over Sara. What Justin said is inappropriate and he should be punished.

Then Annette, who is Stephanie’s friend, looks up at Betty and says, “Can’t you tell that you aren’t wanted here.” Linda, who is watching invites Betty to sit with her.
