Cyberbullying: Understanding and Addressing Online Cruelty
Three lessons comprise the "Cyberbullying: Understanding and Addressing Online Cruelty" unit. In the first, designed for grades 2-5, youngsters practice behaviors that model good online citizenship. The second lesson, designed for middle schoolers, focuses on creating awareness and empathy for those bullied. The final lesson in the module, designed for high schoolers, has groups creating posters that model ways to change attitudes that permit bullying. The lessons are especially appropriate during October’s National Bullying Prevention Month.
