Writing Prompt on Cyberbullying
While scanning your Facebook page, you see embarrassing comments about a boy in your class -- someone who is not really a friend of yours but someone you say “hi” to. You know that the boy is really upset and has missed school several days after the comments were posted. You recognize that this might be cyber bullying.
1. If you and your friends know this is happening and do nothing about it, what message does this send to the bully?
2. What are some things you can do or say?
3. If you choose to stand up for your classmate, how have you impacted your school
climate regarding cyber bullying?
4. In standing up for your classmate, what message is communicated to your classmate?
