Bullying is an issue that has been present in the educational system for many years. While there are many different ways to combat bullying, promoting self-efficacy among peers as well as peer connectedness has shown positive results. The objective of my project was to give students the tools, information, and knowledge on how to personally stop bullying as well as create a sense of community and understanding of differences within the classroom. The research that was collected showed that class meetings were key to promoting a supportive classroom. Class meetings involve communication between teacher and students to discuss daily issues or problems, with the goal of eliminating bullying behaviors. Through student interviews and class meetings, I was able to get a sense of the attitudes towards bullying and ultimately create a more emotionally safe classroom.
