The ways bullying occurs:
Physical bullying is when a student uses physical force to hurt another student by hitting, pushing, shoving, kicking, taking a student’s belongings, or stealing their money.
Verbal bullying is when a student uses words or gestures to humiliate another student by threatening, taunting, intimidating, insulting, sarcasm, name-calling, teasing, slurs, graffiti, put-downs and ridicule.
Relational bullying is when a student isolates another student from their peer group by leaving them out, gossiping, spreading rumors, and scapegoating.
Cyberbullying is when a student uses a cell phone, text messages, e-mails, instant messaging, chats, and social media to bully another student in any of the ways described above. It also includes breaking into a student’s electronic account(s) and assuming that student’s identity in order to damage their reputation.
