Think Before You Send – Cyberbullying Is Cruel – Grades 6-8 Module

Together, students and teachers explore safety issues and the dangers of cyber-bullying, social media, and hiding behind a screen. They will research their own state’s cyber-bullying laws, and learn formal letter writing skills by writing their legislators. Students will learn to stop and think about their behaviors, keep their interactions positive, and take a formal Pledge they sign and date to not cyberbully and to protect others from being cyber-bullied. They discover through project-based activities that cyberbullying truly is cruel and they need to re-think before they send.
