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.

That it would be more true to fact that kids do have a sinister nature. And its getting worse and these strategies are far fetched. Really.

My students are more than just a student.

The webinar really brought awareness to the need to pay attention to our girls more. The middle school aged girls are in a developmental stage where they do not even like themselves. Therefore they look for an out which oftentimes leads to bullying
