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.

We are having issues with our 8th grade girls and bullying. This presentation provides alternate ideas for discipline for us to attempt to use with the girls.

This information will help with the middle school students that I teach.
I thought this was a very good session. Most people think of boys being the mean ones and bullying others but I have witnessed girls doing this and they are more hateful and mean .
