In education, bullying is one of those terms that has been used so much recently that it tends to lose its meaning and impact. It is my desire that as a result of taking this course you will come away with a fresh perspective on the impact of bullying behaviors not only to the victims, but to the teachers, classroom and school dynamics, and to the bully. Unfortunately, if unchecked, the negative impacts on all involved can have devastating and life long consequences. This course has been designed to educate you as well as engage you in the learning process. Since this topic can trigger past bullying incidents that you may have experienced or witnessed, please take your time as you process this information.
