Belonging to various communities is important for kids' development. But some online communities can be healthier than others. Show your students how they can strengthen both online and in-person communities by creating norms that everyone pledges to uphold.

Students will be able to:
  • Define what a community is, both in person and online.
  • Explain how having norms helps people in a community achieve their goals.
  • Create and pledge to adhere to shared norms for being in an online community.
