Relational Aggression : My Own Experiences With Aggression And Bullying

- The journal articles for this section of the course, gave me an opportunity to reflect a lot on my own experiences with aggression and bullying during my childhood and early adolescence.

Based on my own experiences, I found that relational aggression was prevalent during my middle school years....   [tags: Bullying, Abuse, Aggression, Relational aggression]

One take away that changed me professionally is the notion that micromanaging does no good for anyone and that, as a future educator, I need to eliminate micromanaging all together from my teaching repertoire.

Students need to be given more freedom as they progress through grades so they can achieve independence....   [tags: Education, Teacher, School, Classroom]
