Adolescence is a time when girls are known for cliques, relational aggression, and social exclusion. Many of us have our own personal stories of painful social interactions and social injustice to share. How then can we as teachers best support our students through these tumultuous years? This webinar will provide how-to strategies for addressing the growing problem of girl meanness in middle school and high school. Participants will learn how to address friendship struggles and girl bullying within the context of the classroom and social media. Join Dr. Michelle Anthony as she explains the behavior through a developmental lens with a positive tone. She will share a simple four-step process, along with a variety of take-back tools and strategies, to help teachers teach and adolescent girls to manage the many conflicts and dilemmas they face in the teen years.

Great information. It has become an ongoing conversation in my classroom; I wish more students would come forward to ask for help.

The music on this webinar was distracting and sometimes louder than the presenter.

It seems to be getting more difficult to get kids to be upstanders, they do not want to become a target. Kids do need to learn compassion and empathy. Thank you for the presentation.
