The Anti-Defamation League offers “Building Ally Behaviors,” a free 20-minute online course to help teachers in grades 3–7 maintain a positive, safe, inclusive classroom environment so all students can learn and thrive. The course takes teachers through a process to help students move from being bystanders to using ally behaviors in bullying situations. Educators will meet a diverse group of students in elementary and middle school who are faced with bullying behaviors and then will identify effective, practical strategies to build ally behaviors. The course also provides ideas for next steps, additional bullying prevention resources, and a certification of completion.
