PLEASE NOTE: The preview images are poor (this is an issue with the tes preview creator software) but the PowerPoint images themselves are all good. Best wishes, Jack Wiseman

The Provocative Victim

The Provocative Victim

Victims of bullying need help in managing the abuse heaped upon them by bullies. These victims need to develop confidence and resiliency so their life won’t be unmanageable going forward. Victims can become angry and bitter and at times take matters into their own hands. However there is a group of victims who need social skills training, as well as other forms of training such as walking with confidence. This group is known as provocative victims. This course covers the many things that teachers and parents can do in order to help this victim understand his own behavior and how he can become more aware about how is behavior can be irritating, sarcastic, and inflammatory.

Bush Tucker Trial Starters Template!

Bush Tucker Trial Starters Template!

An editable template for a great starter activity (or plenary/review!). Simply change the questions on the wooden panels. Delete and resize if you need less panels. The 2nd slide is differentiated, so the more challenging questions are at the end. I don't own the format, obviously, so this resource is shared for free. I add the theme tune too, but for copyright reasons I can't share on TES! Enjoy!
