The internet is filled with all kinds of interesting people, but sometimes, some of them can be mean to each other. With this role play, help your students understand why it's often easier to be mean online than in person, and how to deal with online meanness when they see it.
With so much information at our fingertips, students learn what it means to "give credit" when using content they find online. Taking on the role of a detective, students learn why it's important to give credit and the right ways to do it when they use words, images, or ideas that belong to others.
This lesson helps children to recognize that it is essential to tell a trusted adult if something online makes them feel angry, sad, or scared.
Students learn that other people can sometimes act like bullies when they are online. They will explore what cyber-bullying means and what they can do when they encounter it. After reading a scenario about mean online behavior, students discuss what cyber-bullying is, how it can make people feel, and how to respond. Finally, they use their knowledge to create a simple tip sheet on cyber-bullying in their journal.
Students may not ever have the misfortune of experiencing cyber-bullying, but we want to make sure that the students are prepared for and knowledgeable about it, in case they ever witness it during an online situation. Students will learn how to identify cyber-bullying and what steps they should take to make it stop. This may become helpful in later puzzles when students have the opportunity to share their work. If someone negatively responds to a student's work, this lesson will provide them with the tools that they need to handle the situation.
Students will be able to:- analyze online behaviors that could be considered cyber-bullying.- explain how to deal with a cyber-bullying situation.- recognize the importance of engaging a trusted adult if the student experienced cyber-bullying.
