Cyberbullying — How to stop being cyberbullied, what to do when others are cyberbullied: Students learn about cyberbullying. They create info guides to educate other students about what cyberbullying is, what to do if they are cyberbullied, how to deter cyberbullying, and what the consequences are for cyberbullying. They will display their info guides in the school and present them to other students.
Application Exercises give students an opportunity to apply concepts they have learned in previous instruction. Work completed by a student will be graded through a variety of scoring options including participation and teacher assessment via rubric to provide flexibility with the type of grade sent to the Learning Management System (LMS) gradebook. Student work may include open-ended questions, correct/incorrect responses, a final product and/or self-assessment.
