Preventing Bullying: A Manual for Teachers in Promoting Global Educational Harmony by Raju Ramanathan, M. Tech and Christina Theophilos, M. Ed provides intervention strategies, classroom activities, and tips for teachers and parents to address all forms of bullying at school. Based on a seven-step learning model, it is intended to foster awareness and empathy in students and to give them the tools they need to help create a positive learning environment and develop respectful and supportive relationships with their classmates. Bullying is a serious problem that negatively impacts the learning environment. “Since bullying is a learned behavior,” the authors state, “it can also be unlearned.” The material is divided into five sections: an overview, how schools can help prevent bullying, prevention and response strategies, intervention strategies, and class activities. The activities follow the seven steps of the learning model.
In Preventing Bullying, Raju Ramanathan and Christina Theophilos give educators a well-defined, classroom-based, student-focused approach to improving student relationships and values in the classroom and preventing harmful bullying behavior. The narrative is well organized, comprehensive, understandable, and practical with many tables, charts, samples, and examples. I found the emphasis on building peer relations especially meaningful. As children pass through their school years, what they learn in addition to academics about the character virtues of kindness, compassion, civility, and courtesy can hold them in good stead as they embark on their adult lives and provide tools for resolving conflicts with others whether in the family, school, or work settings. An informative and useful manual.
