Bullying in Schools Module 1
Social Status

Social status holds a lot of weight in schools. A lot of social pressure is hidden from parents, but children are bullied and tormented based on societal influences. In this module, we discuss the role that social status plays in school and factors that influence it. We also describe theories of masculinity and the role that it plays in violence and shootings.

  • Social Status Wars
  • Power of Wealth
  • Theories of Masculinity
  • White Supremacy

Bullying in Schools Module 2
Violence Against Girls and Bashing

Sexual harassment against girls and dating violence is very prevalent in schools. Jealousy and relationship troubles account for a lot of this violence and even some shootings. Module two discusses these aspects of violence, as well as violence against gay peers. Gay bashing includes abuse against people who identify themselves as gay.  This module describes how typical gender roles play a role in violent behavior.

  • Violence against Girls and School Shootings
  • Flamboyant Heterosexuality
  • “Coming Out” Still Unsafe
  • Girl Bashing

Bullying in Schools Module 3 
Cyber-Bulling and Adult Bullies

These days, bullying extends past face to face encounters and into cyberspace. There are multiple types of cyber-bullying that we examine in this module, as well as efforts that can be used to stop cyber-bullying. We also discuss bullying behaviors that adults engage in, as well as behaviors that involve ignoring and looking the other way when violence occurs.

  • Types of Cyber-Bulling
  • Efforts to Curb Cyber-Bullying
  • Internet Addiction and Social Isolation
  • Parent and Coach Bullies

Bullying in Schools Module 4
Bully Economy and Cyberspaces

Bullying affects the economy, future employment, workforces, and adult success. Competitive and punishment-oriented schools mirror the combative workforce. As children develop, bullying and emotional situations can undermine academic performance. In this final module of the course, we discuss the role bullying plays in the economy. Finally, we describe ways to create safer, more accepting schools.

  • What is a Compassionate Economy?
  • America vs. Europe
  • U.S. Responses to School Shootings
