Teacher Toolkit: 4 Lesson Plans for Bullying Prevention

Creating Safe Spaces: Lesson Plans for Social-Emotional Learning is a bullying prevention toolkit designed by USC Rossier’s online teaching degree to help teachers strengthen students’ social-emotional skills. The toolkit is a collection of four lesson plans/classroom activities for elementary and middle school classrooms (but can be adapted to meet any age group). The lessons are centered around You Matter, a grassroots campaign through MSW@USC that advocates the importance of human connection in conversations surrounding mental health.

  • Lesson 1: Listening and Cooperation: The Wall of Caring
  • Lesson 2: The You Matter Game
  • Lesson 3: History Matters: Important Figures in Human Rights
  • Lesson 4: ‘Spreading the Good’ Scavenger Hunt

Check out USC Rossier’s bullying toolkit to learn more about these lesson plans and how you can implement them in your classroom.
