URL: https://curriculum.code.org/csf-18/coursef/13/
Description:

Students consider that while they are enjoying their favorite websites they may encounter messages from other kids that can make them feel angry, hurt, sad, or fearful. They explore ways to handle cyberbullying and how to respond in the face of upsetting language online.

Students then brainstorm ways to respond to cyberbullying.

Students may not ever have the misfortune of experiencing cyberbullying, but they should understand what it is so that they can spot it online.

Students will be able to:
- empathize with those who have received mean and hurtful messages.

-generate solutions for dealing with cyberbullying.
