  • also prevents disruptive and disrespectful behavior
  • maintains dignity of students
  • maintains dignity of teacher
  • maintains dignity of other school persons”  (p.21, Janney & snell)

“     –   Be responsible

  • be respectful
  • be ready to learn

“Lesson Sequence for Bully Prevention in PBS

  1.  Decide if someone is being disrespectful toward you or toward another student.
  2. If someone is not respectful toward you, then use the STOP signal – words and physical action
  3. As a bystander, if you see someone being treated disrespectfully , then use the STOP signal
  4. If you use the STOP signal and disrespectful behavior continues toward you or another student, then walk away and encourage others to walk away.
  5. If you walk away and disrespectful behavior continues, then talk with an adult.
  6. If someone say STOP to you, stop, then take a deep breath and go about your day.”
