Week 4 – Discussion 2
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Bullying is a prevalent issue during middle childhood. Watch Bullying- Don’t be Such a Nerd. (Links to an external site.) Offer suggestions that can be put into place by teachers, the school, and parents (at least one for each). Use the following sources to support your response:
- Help stop bullying with these resources from the bully project (Links to an external site.)
- Stopbullying (Links to an external site.)
You must address what should be said to the child who is targeted and to the child exhibiting the bullying behavior. You must include what should not be said as well. Include at least one suggestion to be used in the classroom and one suggestion that can be reinforced at home.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Respond to at least two of your classmates by Day 7, and comment on whether or not you think the suggestions are interchangeable. Could the lesson for school be taught at home and vice versa? Why do you think this lesson would or would not work in the alternate setting?
