Most teachers are experienced enough and smart enough to deal with most classroom management issues. One growing issue, bullying, is a difficult and painful issue to have to deal with on a regular basis. Your classroom management strategy for bullies should be strict and direct. Check your school policies for guidelines. Provide an anonymous means of reporting acts of bullying. Place a box in your class where any student can communicate with you on many issues including bullying. And send a clear message of support for the victim. Your classroom should provide a safe haven for anyone who is bullied.
