The Bystander Effect (Updated!)

One of the most effective tools for preventing bullying is peer involvement. This occurs when others are willing to stand up to challenge the bully or defend the victim. Unfortunately, many times people choose to do nothing because they are afraid of being bullied themselves or they are not sure what to do. When individuals choose not to respond to an act of bullying, it is known as the bystander effect. In this lesson, students will explore what it means to be a bystander and brainstorm ways to help get more people involved in stopping cyberbullying. Students should complete this activity after viewing the EasyTech lesson Dealing with Cyberbullying.

Application Exercises give students an opportunity to apply concepts they have learned in previous instruction.

Student work may include open-ended questions, correct/incorrect responses, a final product and/or self-assessment.

This approach will encourage students to consider the impact that cyberbullying has on more than the victim. The students will share their assigned perspective with the class and discuss possible resolutions to the situation.
