The Lynch School of Education at Boston College hosted an annual bullying workshop for aspiring teachers. The enrichment program was designed to train K-12 teachers to recognize, intervene, and prevent bullying and to ensure the safety of all children. The professional developmental workshop aligned with the Massachusetts anti-bullying law and provided practical tools and strategies to use in the classroom. Teachers became familiar with the Massachusetts legislation regarding bullying inside and outside the classroom. They were also taught the nature, scope, and impact of bullying and cyber bullying among students. In addition, the teachers developed a better understanding of the motivations, underlying causes, and frequencies of bullying. They also explored bullying and cyber bullying through students’ first-hand experiences gathered through extensive research from the Massachusetts Aggression Reduction Center (MARC).
