Guide helps teach the difference between bullying and discourse

Guide helps teach the difference between bullying and discourse

Description: http://cdn.smartbrief.com/images/briefs2/common/storyicons2/icon_blog.gifA recently released guide on bullying can help educators find the middle ground between students' Constitutional rights and their right to learn in a safe environment, writes Francisco M. Negrón, Jr., of the National School Boards Association. The guide is a tool teachers can use to help students understand the difference between bullying or harassment and expressing a viewpoint, to teach the importance of civic discourse and thoughtful discussion and to instill in students respect for the rights of others, Negrón writes. "These are the types of hands-on civics lessons that students remember and that mold our next generation into better citizens," he writes. Education Week/Transforming Learning blog
