By Allan L. Beane, Ph.D.

This updated version of the popular Bully Free Classroom takes a closer look at what bullying is and puts more emphasis on the role (and power) of bystanders. It includes a new chapter focusing on empowering bystanders to be allies to those who are being bullied.

This edition also includes:
  • new examples and scenarios
  • thorough examination of relational bullying
  • in-depth look at cyberbullying, including specific technologies such as Facebook and texting
Because labels diminish people, Beane is careful to say “kids who bully” instead of “bullies”; “targets of bullying” instead of “victims” or “victims of bullying.”
Support is provided for teachers, counselors, and supervisors, including a ready-to-use PowerPoint presentation for pre-service and in-service training. The CD-ROM contains all reproducible forms, surveys, handouts, and letters to parents and caregivers found in the book; it also has several bonus handouts geared to the youngest students.
  • Chapters for empowering bystanders, helping targets, and helping those who bully
  • More than 100 activities, discussions, and projects
  • More than 40 reproducible handouts for students and teachers
  • Up-to-date research and statistics about bullying
  • Extensive references and resources
In addition to revising and updating existing activities, the author provides new activities, among which are:
  • Help Students Understand Cyberbullying
  • Teach Cyberbullying Prevention
  • Build Awareness About Relational Bullying
  • Be Aware of CliquesCope With Cliques
  • Help Bystanders Understand Their Role
  • Help Bystanders Develop Empathy
  • Teach Bystanders Skills
  • Provide Opportunities for Bystanders to Practice Skills
  • Give Bystanders Assertiveness Skills
