Educators will come away with an understanding of bullying and harassment prevention education. Lessons will include exploring the base fundamentals of healthy schools (what do we see, hear, and feel in these places), what is power, types of power, what powers do youth have, and how youth can use them to help others. We will look at the dynamics of bullying, the four different types (verbal, physical, social/relational, cyber), and labels and stereotypes. We will touch on the topic of harassment before considering the impacts of hurtful actions and promoting ally and pro-social behaviors. Educators will learn a range of interactive activities that they can lead in their classrooms to promote respect in their school and will be able to take away a sample of the curriculum outlines for teaching some of these topics. We will end the session by sharing information about how you can bring a Bullying and Harassment Prevention focused peer-led facilitation model to your school. *All content shared aligns with Alberta Education Curriculum in Health and Life Skills or CALM.
