Dealing with Bullying for Teens (PowerPoint and Printables)

Dealing with Bullying for Teens (PowerPoint and Printables)

Are you concerned about bullying in your classroom? Bullying is sadly something that happens on a daily basis and most children will be affected by it in some way, shape or form during their school lives. By the time our youngsters are teenagers, bullying takes on new forms and can leave lasting negative effects on their physical and emotional well-being. I believe we need to spend time teaching our students how to recognise bullying and how to deal with it so that we can help them develop into resilient and assertive individuals to help them cope with adulthood.In order to ensure these important skills can be integrated into our busy timetables, this resource has been designed to make it as easy to deliver as possible! It includes a structured PowerPoint that guides the class through discussions about bullying and how to deal with it and develop assertiveness. It can be taught as a whole unit in PSHE or divided up over a few weeks to deliver to tutor groups. No prior knowledge or experience from you is required! On top of this, the PowerPoint text is EDITABLE so you can modify the content to suit your students’ needs, should you wish.Also included are graphic organizer printables which are supplementary to the PowerPoint: they’re not a requirement, but they work as a helpful tool for students to record their thoughts in an aesthetically pleasing way that can then be used for wall displays etc. You will also find a set of discussion task cards for students to discuss possible scenarios they may come across: these can be printed off for each group of students, or they can be used in whole class discussion – it is up to you! Product includes:• 22 slide PowerPoint • 14 printables of detailed teachers' notes and graphic organizers• 6 scenarios to analyseStudents will learn:• To identify what bullying is• To analyse common situations and discuss which are considered bullying and why• The reasons why people might bully others• The impact bullying has on others• Ways they can respond to bullies• How to be assertive• How to deal with bullying• Support networks they can turn to for support• A final pep-talk!Great for Social Skills, Life skills, Tutor Periods and PSHE (Physical, Social, Health Education) lessons.

The download comprises 20 X PSHE lessons/sessions that can be used multiple times with the same group. The method uses a selection of debate and discussion activities to explore PSHE issues for KS1 and KS2 students. This download is designed to be a significant component of any primary school's PSHE provision. A demo of the method can be found here: https://goo.gl/DrcSqv [though the content is not relevant to PSHE, it shows how the approach works] The Philosophy Boxes Method is a new approach to P4C designed for students in KS1, 2 & 3: it is graphically stimulating, engaging, and fun. This download is also suitable for older students: but the format was designed with younger students in mind. In this context: 'Philosophy Boxes' represents a more student-centred 'debate & discussion' approach to PSHE issues. The aim of Philosophy Boxes is to bring philosophy and critical thinking into every subject at every level: we believe that any subject becomes philosophy when students are asked the right questions and when they think about a topic hard enough and on the deepest (most fundamental) level. The Philosophy Boxes Method presents students with a set of 'mystery boxes', when a student selects one of the boxes they are presented with 1 of 21 discussion/debate activities [that use 1 of 8 different formats]. The presentation has integrated AfL so that teachers can test knowledge at any point in the lesson. There are 10 different AfL slides to choose from. The design is colourful, animated, fun and engaging: all activities require movement and teachers can decide whether students are expressing their ideas purely verbally or by using post-it notes. The nature of the design is that it can be used for short sessions (5-10 minutes) or much longer sessions (up to 2 hours!) - it allows for classroom practitioners to be flexible and adaptable. It can, therefore, be used in lessons or as a tutor-time activity. The download includes a PowerPoint Show; if you would like an editable PPT presentation so that you can make your own 'Philosophy Boxes' presentation you will need to download the template here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-the-philosophy-boxes-method-template-for-creating-your-own-philosophy-boxes-lessons-p4c-p4k-11463227 A complete selection of Philosophy Boxes lessons can be found here: https://www.tes.com/resources/search/?&q=philosophy+boxes+godwin86 This PSHE course is based around the topics listed on the BBC Bitesize Resources for KS1 & KS2 PSHE (their content can be used alongside these resources to bolster your PSHE provision, though this download does not require additional preparation or resources) [http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/subjects/zqtnvcw]

It is great for harmony day and also the International Day For The Elimination Of Racial Discrimination. I have included a range of different presentations of different countries around the world. You are able to compare and contrast lives in other places. I have included stories from India, as this is the largest ethnic minority in the UK, and I thought it would be nice to see the differences and similarities between the two countries. I have also included 2 presentations about the Brexit (Brexit Conversation Ideas and International Day For the Elimination of Racial Discrimination - which covers Britain pre- and post Brexit and its crime rates).

Thinking Creatively 3 (US): A Course in Creative and Applied Thinking Skills

Thinking Creatively 3 (US): A Course in Creative and Applied Thinking Skills

These activity pages have been designed to allow and encourage teachers to become totally involved with the teaching of creative thinking skills.While there is no one accepted way of teaching ‘thinking’, we feel that in being provided with an organized and developmental outline of some of the sub-skills, teachers may more readily internalize these skills, allowing a smoother approach to teaching thinking within the classroom.While most experts can never agree on a definition, they do agree that ‘thinking’ has a series of sub-skills. For the purpose of teaching them each of these skills can be treated in isolation. They include: fluency, flexibility, originality, elaboration, curiosity, complexity, risk taking and imagination. Each of these sets contain a teachers' note and four timed word questions relating to one of the skills. This ebook is available in US, UK and AU versions.This is a Photocopy Master ebook (45 pages) and activity pages may be photocopied for use in the classroom.Our ebooks are in pdf format.Edubooks is an imprint of Ready-Ed Publications.

Be My Buddy 1 US: A program to help develop academic, social and personal skills.

This e-book contains a buddy program for elementary aged students.This program is quite structured in nature. Two classes are involved in the program - an older and younger class (e.g. Grade 5 with a Grade 1 class). Each child is given a partner or a buddy by the class teachers. These pairings are decided upon by both teachers after considering the special needs and capabilities of each child. The same partners are kept for the whole year so that a strong bond develops between the two students.These activities enable children to learn from each other in a caring and friendly environment; develop academic, social and personal skills; display an awareness and a need to care for others; develop the skills of responsibility, understanding and tolerance; assist the younger students with their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills; display a greater awareness of the world around them; and develop an awareness of the concept and value of friendship.This ebook is available in US, UK and AU versions.This is a Photocopy Master ebook (47 pages) and activity pages may be photocopied for use in the classroom.Our ebooks are in pdf format.Edubooks is an imprint of Ready-Ed Publications.Authors: Toni McRae & Karen McDonald

51 Spring Themed Colouring Pages - They are anti - stress colouring pages - perfect for KS1 and KS2

51 Spring themed coloring pages. The idea is to use them in between intensive SATS revision, as a way to reduce the stress levels of children. According to Science, repetitive movements helps to promote serotonin production, increasing the level of happiness in children and decreasing their stress levels. I have collected these pictures together and made them easy for a teacher to print out. I did collect them from a public domain source but I have spent time resizing them, fitting them into the theme and getting them ready for classroom use.
