|Playing ‘Block The Bully
Cycle’ clearly shows how bullying is frequently
unintentionally reinforced by bystanders who laugh at
mean jokes, confer social status to bullies, or simply
stand by and let bullying happen. Students will learn
practical skills that they can use if they are:
· A target of bullying seeking non-violent skills
· A bystander who wants to discourage bullying
· A former bully who wants to gain popularity
without resorting to bullying
The game intentionally avoids putting players in the
role either of the intended victim or the bully, avoiding
embarrassment and defensiveness.
