         Quick Write Warm Up

How would you best describe or define hate behavior?
   And, what are the three different levels that we
   recognize? (5 min)
          What is Hate Behavior?

The District and State of California define hate-motivated
  behavior as actions or statements that are hostile or
  threatening towards another person based on their:

   Race, ethnicity, national origin, or immigrant status
   Gender or sexual orientation
   Religious beliefs or cultural characteristics
   Age, disability or any other physical conditions
What Are the 3 Different Levels of
     Hate Harassment and
        Hate Behavior?
   Level 1: Insensitive or Inappropriate Remarks and
    Behavior

   Level 2: Hate-Motivated Intimidation or
    Harassment

   Level 3: Hate Violence
Level 1: Insensitive or Inappropriate
       Remarks and Behavior
   These acts do not threaten or are absent of
    hostility.

   Include demeaning or degrading statements or
    phrases between student who are not doing it to
    be harmful or hateful.
          Level 2: Hate-Motivated
        Intimidation or Harassment
   Actions, remarks or statements that create a
    negative or hostile learning environment but do
    not include physical harm or threat.

   Examples are name calling, racial slurs,
    demeaning jokes, physical or verbal harassment,
    offensive drawings or words used in graffiti,
    paintings or on clothing.
            Level 3: Hate Violence
   These include any actions that cause harm , attempting
    to cause harm or threatening to cause harm based on
    someone’s characteristics or status.
   It also included any threats of hostility that have historical
    significance such as burning crosses, swastikas, or images that
    threaten to cause harm.
   Racial slurs, name calling, and bigoted epithets along
    with a threat to cause harm are also considered Hate
    Violence.
Apply our knowledge
 In the next few slides you will
be given a set of scenarios and
asked to identify behaviors that
we would find offensive to the
          Falcon Way.
                     Scenario A
   At break, you and your friends are
    talking. You remember a joke that
    you heard that makes fun of Asians.
    One of your friends happens to be
    Asian, and laughs along with
    everyone else when the joke ends. In
    fact, he decides to tell a joke about
    Asians himself.

    In groups of four, practice respectful listening
    and consider whether this is considered a
    Level 1 offense. (Remember not to interrupt
    the speaker.) Each person should be prepared
    to explain your thinking.
                Scenario A
   This is considered a Level 1
    offense because the jokes were
    not meant to be “mean.”

   However, they are considered
    to be “insensitive or            Consequences:
    inappropriate remarks”
    because the jokes were           •Counseling
    verbalized, other people could   • Detention
    have heard them, who could       • Suspension
    be offended.
                                     • Police contact
                   Scenario B
   While playing basketball during PE, John calls Danny “gay” because he
    missed a shot. The game continues, and again Danny misses a shot. This time
    John calls Danny a “homo.” The game wraps up and the students go into the
    locker room to change for their next class. Once again, John sees Danny and
    calls him “gay” for ruining the basketball game.
   At lunch, John is with his friends and they come upon Danny in the halls.
    This time, John calls Danny more negative names. John’s friends laugh and
    Danny moves on to his next class. The next day, at break, John sees Danny
    and goes over and calls him a “homo” again.

     With a partner, practice respectful listening
     and consider whether this is considered a
     Level 1 offense. (Remember not to interrupt
     the speaker.) Each person should be prepared
     to explain your thinking.
                Scenario B
   This is considered a Level 2
    Offense because John was
    intending to “hurt” Danny by
    calling him these names.
   These names have no other type      Consequences:
    of impact except that of being
    negative. Also, John did not stop   • Suspension
    calling Danny these names and       • Police contact
    continued to do so throughout
    the day. Thus, John created an
    environment that was hostile for
    Danny.
              Scenario C
While in class, a group of three students were drawing swastikas on their
notebooks and they left it for another student to see. The student who saw the
drawings reported them to the teacher. The teacher sent the students to the
office where all three students emphatically deny being racist in any way; and
they say they were just drawing them without thinking.


In groups of four, practice respectful
listening and consider whether this is
considered a Level 1 offense. (Remember
not to interrupt the speaker.) How did you
come to this decision?
                      Scenario C
   A Level 3 offense is the most serious
    offense because it not only breaks
    school/district rules, but it is also against
    the law. In this offense, actions that          Consequences:
    actually cause harm, attempt to cause harm
    or threaten to cause harm are present.          • Suspension
   This ‘hate violence’ also includes any          •Expulsion
    threats of hostility that have historical
    significance.
                                                    • Police contact
   Racial slurs or name calling along with a
    threat to cause harm is considered ‘hate
    violence.’
                      Thinking Bigger:
What is the purpose of having Hate Behavior Laws?
How does it relate to our school’s mission statement?

What should you do?
  1. Report it immediately to a teacher, counselor or administrator.
