February 2019

Clear Creek ISD developed a bullying prevention program for students who are in 4th – 12th grades. The program for intermediate school is called “Stepping Up, Stepping In, and Stepping Out.” The lessons are taught once per year and each grade level has learning outcomes that build upon what was learned during the previous year. The table below shows the learning objectives for 6th, 7th, and 8th grades:

6th Grade

(Stepping Up)

1. I understand what it means to be a bystander and an upstander.

2. I understand why someone would not

intervene when witnessing a bullying situation.

3. I understand ways to combat the bystander effect by

acquiring additional skills to intervene.

4. My actions show core values.

7th Grade

(Stepping In)

1. I grow in empathy and acceptance of others.

2. I can practice empathy towards others.

3. I practice the knowledge, attitudes, and interpersonal skills to help me understand and respect others and myself.

4. My actions show core values.

8th Grade

(Stepping Out)

1. I practice safe coping skills around stress, anxiety, disappointment, and frustration.

2. I can identify and practice safe self-regulatory

behaviors.

3. My actions show core values.

 

 

During the month of February and the first week in March, the 6th and 7th graders at Westbrook will participate in a lesson and an activity that is aligned with the learning outcomes.  The 8th graders will be listening to presentations regarding Mental Health during February, so their bullying lesson will be later on.
