Teaching and Learning Strategies


Bullying in schools--Prevention--Study and teaching (Elementary); Caricatures and cartoons; Wit and humor in education;


Bullying is a pressing concern in schools as many teachers are not being sufficiently prepared with curriculum and instructional strategies to prevent, mitigate, or halt it. This document presents classroom-tested cartoons created by graduate students that address the causes, effects, and ways of preventing or stopping bullying in an interesting and often humorous cartoon format. The cartoons are arranged into three sets for the following elementary grade ranges: grades kindergarten through second grade; grades three and four; and grades five and six. Instructions and materials for guiding students’ practice of the bullying concepts through completing partly-finished cartoons and original cartoons are provided. Thirty-six complete color cartoons and nine exercises with partly-completed cartoons are included. [14 references; 63 figures]
