Core Curriculum Counseling Classroom Lessons


bullyingAs part of our ongoing efforts to prevent harassing and bullying behavior at Big Shanty Intermediate, Dr. Hill and Mrs. Deal have been teaching bullying prevention lessons during core curriculum counseling classroom lessons. The four lessons in this series are:

  1. Tattling vs. Telling
    • What’s the difference between tattling and telling?
    • What are the consequences of tattling?
    • How do I know when I need to tell?
  2. Friendly/Playful Teasing vs. Hurtful Teasing
    • What is the difference between the two?
    • What are personal boundaries?
  3. What you Need to Know About Bullying Behavior
    • What is bullying behavior?
    • What role do I play?
  4. Bystanders: They’ve Got the Power!
    • What is a helpful bystander vs. a hurtful bystander?
    • How can bystanders take power away from the bully and give power to the target?



What a great start to 2016! All our BSI Eagles have settled back into the nest and are working hard. We celebrated all of our Eagles’ accomplishments from the 2nd nine weeks during our Eagle Awards Ceremonies the 1st week we returned. We’re looking forward to celebrating all those positive choices we’re going to be making in this new year!
