Still image from When You See Bullying Happen: What A Bystander Can Do

Shows elementary students how to take an active role in stopping a bully. Notes that a bystander who does nothing helps the bully, not the victim. Reminds students they can tell the bully how they feel, stand up together as a group, be an ally to the victim, or tell an adult. Encourages them to be part of the solution, not a passive part of the problem.

    I like this video as children are the actors--they are very relatable for my students. The video is thoughtful and highlights some great ways to deal with bullying.
