Curriculum: Exclusivity

Bullying is an issue we all face in our schools. Sometimes the aggression is physical and easily identified as bullying. In other instances, bullying may be harder to recognize, such as issues of acceptance and inclusion. This type of bullying may seem easy to ignore, but creating an accepting and inclusive classroom environment is possible once you start to examine and identify your own behavior.

Take a look at this common classroom occurrence. Put yourself in the shoes of any one of the individuals in the class – the target, aggressors, and bystanders. How can you help make it a tolerant, accepting environment for all students?
