I followed the same lesson plans as in the previous post but we were racing against time before winter break to finish the group. Because of this, we didn't have time to devote to researching and resolving a problem about bullying. Instead, we learned the definition of relational aggression and talked about whether relational aggression is a problem here at our school and if students know what it is. Even though I teach the Steps to Respect anti-bullying series here, I still think that relational aggression is an under-taught area of bullying prevention.
We used the following definition of relational aggression: Relational aggression is behavior that is intended to hurt someone by harming his or her relationships with others (Crick & Grotpeter, 1995).
Didn't the girls do a great job?!
