Does Bullying Serve A Purpose?

Does Bullying Serve A Purpose? | Education and Bullying | Scoop.it
Bullying is considered a destructive and aggressive behavior. But does it serve a purpose? We speak with an expert who says bullying is a way to gain social capital.
jhenehan's insight:

This is sort of a video, but more just audio of an article that I found very relaibale and informatonal. The title of the article drew me in. Does Bullying serve a purpose? This question really made me interested in reading/listening in the article. There is no one reason why people bully. It is important to distinguish between bullying and just being mean. Bullying is a campaign assault against someone. I think that while being a student for the past 18 years, I have seeen bullying first hand and it is very upsetting to see this. The incentive to bullying and social status is important amoung group members that are performing in this bullying. Another interesting thing mentioned in the article was cyber bullying. I think that in todays society this is really on the rise and becoming a major problelm. You see children on the news almost every week that have hurt themselves due to being bullied. To me this is unacceptable. Maturity has seen to help with bullying stopping. I feel that this makes sense, as people grow up and mature they seem to grow out of this bullying. Although as adults bullying is still seen. From listening to this article is will help me in my future as a teacher and as a person as I grow up and begin to have a family.

Cyber Bullying Statistics - Bullying Statistics

Cyber bullying statistics refers to Internet bullying. Cyber bullying is a form of teen violence that can do lasting harm to young people. Bullying statistics show that cyber bullying is a serious problem among teens.
jhenehan's insight:

I think every person should stop and take a look at the statistic that I found in this article. They are unbelievable and I think that the more people are aware of bullying and its impact the more and more people will begin to become more knowledgable on the topic and we will begin to see a decline in bullying. There are many different forms to bullying. Even the littliest thing can be considered bullying. One may be unaware of doing it. I think that as an educator I can use the tips in this artcile about how to reduce bullying and to make students aware of how big of a problem that this has become and the consequences that can come from bullying. I think that this article/website is very reliable and important. When comparing these statistics to other statistics they are the same. The website even has statistics from past years which I found to be interesting to see how bullying has gone up and down throughout the years.

Bullying in Schools | Education.com | Education and Bullying | Scoop.it
Looking for bullying articles? Education.com covers this worldwide problem from every angle with a great selection of bullying articles.
jhenehan's insight:

This article is important to show how bullying can have negative effects on the whole schools climate. It also has negative lifelong consequences. A statistic that I actually thought would have been higher in the article was that 15% of students in todays society have been either bullied or have been bullies themselves. I thought that this number would have been higher. When I was younger bullying was a big problem and even today I hear about bullying as young as first grade and sometimes even in college. I thought that mainly this would be in middle school and high school but it is now being seen in elementary school. This is crazy. The article lays out very well what bullying is.

jhenehan's insight:

This was a great visual about statistics of bullying. 

-28% of students ages 12-18 were bullied in 2008/2009 school year.

-Different forms of bullying. Made fun of, rumors, pushing, threatening, cyberbullying, excluded, forced, and even property destroyed. 

-It mentions how people who are bullied are more liekly to have deppression symptoms, harm themselves, and suicidal thoughts. 

- It gives you a number to call if you think someone may need help.

-Also, many people are too scared to speak out because of threats, retaliation, and others reactions to them. 

-The article mentions to be more than just a bystander. 

 

 

I personally feel that I learned a lot from this. It is something that I can use as a future educator. It made me aware of the bullying statistics and how important it is for parents to also be involved and to be aware of the growing problems.

Bullying – the Biggest Problem in Elementary Schools

You send your children to an elementary school to provide him with an education. An elementary school is the provider of primary education which builds the base for your child to go into high school and then go for higher education.
jhenehan's insight:

I pulled this article up as soon as I saw it because of the title. Bullying- the biggest problem in elementary schools. I think that this is very true. Bullying seems to be the biggest problem in elementary school. When I was growing up to me if seemed to be more of a problem in middle school, but I think that in todays society it is being seen at a much younger age. You send your children to these schools to provide them with education, but what are they really getting. Are they being bullied. The article too mention how bullying happens in groups and some students feel that if they are in a group that is bullying someone else that they too need to bully as well. It is a growing problem. I feel that I can use the information to my advantage when I become an educator as I am becoming an educator. I can teach students and I can also be aware of this when I am teaching students. I will be able to be on the lookout!

This is an article about how newer schools deal with bullying. It is a film that is designed to held educators and teachers to respond to bullying. It all about What can we do. It teaches the teachers about how to teach their students about bullying and to make their students of bullying and its impact. The film was launched in a school in Washington, D.C.

jhenehan's insight:

This is an interesting representation about "safebook/facebook" and the ways in which one should share information. It shows people the ways in which to be safe while on facebook. The poster shows how you should think about what your posting before you post it. It reminds you to always be kind to others and to connect only with people that you know. Privacy is also very important. Make sure your settings on your facebook are very private. It also shows that people should report bullying and not just let it go. Bullying is a big problem, especially on social media.

I have seen this image several times.  I think this is a great artifact to show to our students.  Posting it in our classrooms as a daily reminder is not a bad idea either!

 

Heather Fish's curator insight, August 14, 2013 11:57 AM

These are great posters about bullying to use in your schools.  We can print these posters at CESA 5 if you are interested.
