Cyberbullying: Be Upstanding (6-8)
Students learn about the difference between being a passive bystander versus a brave upstander in cyberbullying situations. Students reflect on what it means to be brave and to stand up for others. They fill out the Why Care? Student Handout, create a diagram of the players involved, and generate ideas about how bystanders can become upstanders. They then identify concrete solutions for dealing with cyberbullying situations.
Students will be able to ...
- reflect on what it means to be brave and stand up for others offline and online.
- learn to show empathy for those who have been cyberbullied.
- generate multiple solutions for helping others when cyberbullying occurs.
