Bullying – A Rational Choice | Brain Blogger | Ending Bullying in Schools | Scoop.it
It has been suggested that victimization by bullies has led to self-harm, suicide and even school shootings. Often, bullying is treated as pathological. The bully has a disease that needs to be cured.
Jem Muldoon's insight:

"Research shows that most bullies — excluding those who have not previously been victims of bullying themselves — do not suffer from mental or emotional problems. They do not have problems with experiencing empathy or with theory of mind. Maybe bullies are not victims of a disorder. Bullies might simply be behaving rationally. They have weighed the costs and benefits of bullying and have determined that the rewards outweigh the risks."

Jem Muldoon's insight:

"There are detrimental problems with the standing definition ascribed by the White House. The term as defined removes all identifiers of the movement’s predominantly effected population. By severing LGBTQ from bullying, controversy associated with the LGBTQ “lifestyle” is eliminated; the ever-present civil rights issues attached to the population, detached."

Jem Muldoon's insight:

The life of the great teacher is a life of service. Even those who have made such a big impact on teaching, from Rick Wormelli to Linda Darling-Hammond, have helped us understand necessary changes from the teacher's point of view. Paul Thomas provides some beautiful anecdotes of being that great teacher. Were his motive not service, these anecdotes would be lost.

Katie Chung's curator insight, December 9, 2013 12:52 AM

Like many other sensitive topics, bullying should be approached carefully and cautiously. This PDF is a great resource that give teachers the rundown of how to approach bullying and how to teach it in their classrooms. As teachers it is our duty not only to teach about topics like bullying, but approach it in a way that will not put students on the spot or calls out specific students. We must remember that bullying happens to be a very personal issue and should be doing all we can do to teach it in an effective, yet sensitive way.
