Case study: bullying

Teaching and bullying

Watch teachers talking about what they would do if they discovered a learner was being bullied.

This is the situation:

You notice one of your learners, who used to participate in class, has become very withdrawn and they don’t seem to interact with the other learners. You notice this learner sitting alone during break times instead of spending time with others and you also saw an incident during break time where two other learners were harassing him. He was very upset. After some investigation, you discover that he is being bullied.

  • Which teacher do you agree with the most?
  • What would you do in this situation?
  • Bullying can occur in adult classes too. What would you do if you noticed it?
