3 Bullying DefinitionBehavior that is intentional, hurtful and repeated by one or more persons.Bullied students are teased, harassed, and assaulted verbally or physically.3 Lucia Read definition. Look at the picture of this little girl here. Do you see them in the background. What do you think the other girls are doing? (talking bad about her), (excluding her from their group), (teasing her). Do you think these things are bullying. How do you think this girl feels? She is going to go home from school and be thinking about how she is going to deal with this for the entire school year. It’s not right. And there are students in this school that feel this same way. There are kids in this classroom that feel the same way. We need to stop and think about what were doing and “treat other people the way you want to be treated”.

6 DirectPhysical – hitting, kicking, pushing, stealing, hiding or ruining someone’s things.Making someone do something they don’t want to do.Verbal – name calling, teasing, insulting, threats.6 PennyPushing in the hallway, hiding someone’s food at the lunch table. Teasing someone about the way they look. Name calling. No one in here has the right to call anyone a name that is insulting or offensive.
7 IndirectRelationship Bullying – gossiping, spreading rumors and lies about someone.Making someone feel left out or rejected.7 LuciaWhich one of these types of bullying do you think boys are involved in? Which one do you think girls are involved in? At one school there were these kids who thought they were the cool kids and they had this signup sheet for other kids who wanted to sit with them at lunch. What happen was kids would sign up and they would pass the sign up sheet around to see who was rejected or not. This is mean and unacceptable and do you think this is the way those kids would want to be treated?

16 Kristina A Calco16 LuciaHer name is Kristina. In middle school she was a 4.0 honor student who always strived for perfection in everything she did. She was extremely artistic and some of her work was chosen to be on the cover of the school yearbook. She also designed some of the school t-shirts. She was a shy girl so she joined yearbook staff and newspaper staff to help her overcome her fears. Even though she wasn’t a good athlete she joined the swimming team, volleyball team and track team. Kristina supported her school in every way. She attended numerous sporting events like basketball and football. After graduating from 8th grade, she went to high school and tried out for the JV cheerleading team. This was written in her journal “Me, Kristina, I made the cheerleading squad for high school! JV too! I’m so proud of myself!” But despite all her accomplishments there were some students who would still CHOOSE to drag her down. You see in Middle school she was tormented, teased, ridiculed, and called ugly. She never told a single adult about what happen. Her friends would have to console her and tell her she wasn’t ugly and tell her she was beautiful. However, the bullying didn’t end she was a sensitive girl who made feel to ugly on a daily basis by her own peers. By the time she was in 9th grade she actually believed she was ugly. Just months shy of her 16th birthday, Kristina committed suicide.
