ethics of care
The school bullying happens again and again, but our goal is to have friendly environment for students. The immature teeangers are prone to make mistakes while they are ineracting with others. I have been a homeroom teacher for 22 years and have close interaction with students. Every year there are bullying cases in my classs, whether the students behave that way on purpose or not. Furthermore, due to the uniqueness of every case, the teacher has to spend a lot of energy and time to prevent the bullying beforehand and do the counselling afterwards. This study aims to answer the questions: As a homeroom teacher at a junior high school, how can I find out bullying cases in my class? Besides, how can I deal with the bullying and guide my students by practicing the ethics of care? This study explored peer-bullying through the teacher’s interaction with four cases. I described how I utilizesd ehtics of care to discuss the outcome and process during class management in three different ways: observation, interviewing and document-analysis. Through narrative research, I described how a junior high school homeroom teacher practicesd ethics of care and developed students’ characters by using conversations, examples, practices, and assertiveness. The main findings are as follows: First, The bullying cases mostly happened in private occasions. The homeroom teachers noticed students’ subtle differences. Observation and care for them helped teachers discover the differences of students directly. Besides, the homeroom teacher made good use of communication books to find out the problems. Students diaries revealed their daily lives and the teacher thus found out the problems. Second, The teacher was sensitive enough to find out students’ differences and intervene in the cases at a proper time. The teacher taught the whole class about values during class hours and at the same time deal with the cases properly in time. Finally, this study provides the suggestions for homeroom teacher to solve peer bullying and to practice of ethics of care.
