Description of Contents
Addressing all age levels, ranging from kindergarten to secondary school, the ABC’s of bullying prevention is a training material that encompasses three lessons for each grade level, and is structured around these set of questions: what is the problem? Why should I care? What can I do about it?
Each grade level module is different and contains the essential three concepts that students must understand in order for their attitude and behavior to change. Besides indicating the target groups, all modules include the time, objectives, essential questions to arise, materials, results to be attained by the end, instructions to develop the class and an assessment method. In some cases, teachers are informed they can access videos in some of the lessons – these videos are available at it is recommended to download them prior to beginning the lesson.
The book also contains an initial part where it approaches theoretical issues regarding the bullying problem.
The purpose of the activities is to allow students to reflect on how their attitudes have evolved over their school years in the areas of bullying awareness, their roles in the bullying triangle (person targeted – victim -, person bullying and bystanders), and their actions to intervene.
This is definitely an excellent pedagogical manual for teachers where to base their analysis and discussions about bullying. Well-structured and logically organized, with a chronological sequence, teachers and headmasters can get an excellent help from its use. Its simplicity is probably its added-value for it allows a clear understanding of its theoretical approach, planning and implementation in class. Also, the richness of the proposed activities, the way they try to address all school community to respond more effectively to this problem seems quite a strength that must be underlined.
On the whole, the transferability potential of this pedagogical resource is high as it allows for the adjustment, mutatis mutandis, of different educational systems, diverse school organizations and other curriculum development challenges.
