Whispers
On Mrs. Linds class a group of students were caught whispering negative and derogatory things about a new student. The group pf students was confronted by they neglected doing so. Mrs. Linds was convinced of what she heard. Another student who sits nearby overheard the whispers and told Mrs. Linds but also expressed being scared to confess in front of them because of possible bullying.
What could Mrs. Linds do in this case?

The first thing I would do is figure out who the Ringleader of the group is. Typically, in these situations there are a few negative people and others are following the behavior to be "cool" and to feel accepted. I would talk to the few persons that I believe are speaking negative and derogatory things about one of my students individually. First, I would warn about the behavior and ask for it not to continue and let them know the consequences if it does. If there behavior persists, I would start with a consequence that was focused on compassion or anti-bullying, more than likely a paper depending on the age. Most schools have an anti-bullying policy so there is a very good chance the administration would have some particular rules that I could follow as well.

Mrs. Linds should pull each participant one-on-one to get to the bottom of why the whispering has occurred. The students should be given a warning, if this has not happened before, and warned that if it happens again consequences will take place. One the teacher talks to the participants, the leader of the group needs to be noted. The teacher needs to make note of what happened, that way there is evidence if the problem continues.

I would identify the ringleader and I would discuss the matter privately. I would also refer to school bullying policies should the behavior continue.

This teacher should address the bullying and find the main "ringleader" of the group. Bullying should never be tolerated, so in order to figure out who was the main suspect, a lunch detention or two should be given to the group. They need to understand that there will be consequences when bullying is present.

Mrs. Linds should pull each participant and have a one-on-one. Once she uncovers what really happen the students should apologies to the student they were talking bad about. She should turn this into a teaching moment about how they would feel they were being made fun of etc., she should set an example so other student wont do it and respect each other.

I would identify all the students and give them lunch detention after conferencing with them individually. Bullying will not be tolerated and I would involve the parents and administration very quickly to problem solve.
