Finish SHMOOP Day 1

Step 4 (15-20 mins):  Pick one type of Cyberbullying (or tactic, as they're called in the Internet Safety 101 article from Step 1).

The types of bullying tactics are listed below. (Students should refer to the Internet Safety 101 article for definitions.)

  • Gossip

  • Exclusion

  • Impersonation

  • Harassment

  • Cyberstalking

  • Flaming

  • Outing and trickery

  • Cyberthreats

Each person creates a "group chat" using this link about the type of bullying, how the victims can get help, and who they can get help from.

The skits should each present at least one way to resolve the particular type of cyberbullying.  

Each skit "chat" will be written out on their Shmoop Day 1 Google Doc.

1. Student A: Oh my gosh, Joey won’t stop spreading rumors about me online! (Line 1)

2. Student B: What a jerk! What are you going to do to get him to stop? (Line 2)

3. Student A: I think I am going to go talk to my Counselor and see what she says. (Line 3)

4. Student B: Oh that would be a good idea, you can also... (Line 4)

5. Student A: Yeah I could do that, but I don't want him to get in trouble, just to stop (Line 5)

---Student A goes to Counselor
6. Student A; Hey Ms. Williams... (Line 6)

7. Mrs. Williams: blah blah blah (Line 7)

20 Lines of dialogue total!!! Split into 2 different "screenshots" 10 and 10

Remember there are many different ways in which cyberbullying can take place and many ways to try and

resolve it if/when it happens.
