Cyber-bullying Toolkit from Common Sense Media

posted by Nell Minow

Common Sense Media has prepared a free cyber-bullying toolkit for educators with materials designed to show students how to stand up when they see digital harassment happening and to help create a positive school culture where kids can thrive – both online and off.  It has engaging, turn-key instruction for classrooms at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels.  There’s also a grade level “workshop in a box” to bolster  parent involvement efforts.  

I like these materials because they provide a context for kids to share their own views, not just about cyber-bullying but about any form of exclusion or mean behavior and, even more important, about how to find the courage to do what is right even if everyone else is doing something wrong.
