How should teachers deal with bullying in the classroom?

If teachers see or hear bullying in the classroom (or anywhere in or around school grounds) they should:

  1. Stop the bullying immediately
  2. Listen to and support the student who is being bullied
  3. To the student(s) who bullied, name the behavior and refer to the rules against bullying
  4. Impose immediate and appropriate consequences for the student(s) who bullied
  5. Empower the bystanders with appreciation, correction or with information about how to act in the future
  6. Take necessary steps to make sure the student who was bullied will be protected from future bullying
