Sensitive Classroom Discussion
Just an FYI of a Sensitive Topic We Will Be Discussing
Dangers of Technology and Dating
The discussion will begin on Wednesday 2/17 and I wanted to give you ample time to look over the material and decide if you have any objections to the content. The goal of the lesson is to discuss responsible use of technology and social media, but also to assist teens in handling the peer pressure.
These are hard topics, but as a teacher, I see how much the technology consumes the students' lives. I watch as they try to secretly take pictures of each other, and I've witnessed tears over cyberbullying. We must be talking to kids about the ramifications of the world wide web. If you prefer that your child not participate in the discussion, please let me know, and I will provide an alternate assignment for them.
