Anti Bullying Week Lesson Plan 2018: Conflict Vs. Bullying

Anti Bullying Week 2018 is upon us! This year’s theme is “Choose Respect”, and highlights bullying as a behaviour choice.

At OpenView Education, we’re here to give you an excellent Anti Bullying Week, with some great free Anti Bullying Lesson Plans.

Check out all our interactive Anti Bullying Lesson Plans here.

Make sure you try out this Anti Bullying Lesson Plan with your class.

  • Students will learn about the difference between Conflict and Bullying

  • Students will discuss their own experiences of Conflict Vs Bullying

Teaching The Lesson:

Introduction: 10 minutes.

Ask your students:

  • What do you understand a conflict to be?

Explain to your students that:

A conflict can be something like an argument or a disagreement. It isn’t repetitive, and the people involve also may apologise to each other.

Ask your students:

  • What do you think the difference between conflict and bullying is?

Take suggestions from the students, and then write “Conflict” and “Bullying” on the board, drawing a line between the two words.

Conflict:

  • Arguments or Disagreements.

  • Not Repetitive.

  • There may be an apology.

Bullying:

  • Repetitive. (Lots of times)

  • Intentional Hurting. (On Purpose)

  • No Apology.

Watch Video: Conflict Vs. Bullying and then discuss 20 minutes.

Play the first part of the video below, and pause when instructed to do so.

Discuss with your students whether what Philip is describing is Conflict or Bullying.

Ask your students:

  • Is this conflict or bullying? – And how do we know?

  • Has anyone ever been in a similar situation?

Once you have finished your first discussion, play the final part of the video.

Ask your students:

  • What is the best way to move on from a conflict?

  • Is it a good thing that Milly and Philip are still friends after their conflict?

  • What are some of the ways we can resolve conflicts?

Conclusion: 10 minutes.

Talk to your students about the “Choose Respect” theme for Anti-Bullying Week.

Ask your students:

  • What does respect mean to you?

  • What have you learnt about respect from watching this video?
