Group Think (3-5)

How can you be an upstander when you witness cyberbullying?

Students identify actions that will make them upstanders in the face of cyberbullying.

Students learn that people their age sometimes think and behave differently in groups than they would if each person was alone. Students then examine the role of a bystander versus an upstander in a group cyberbullying situation. They try to understand the feelings of the target and develop a class pledge about what they will do if they witness cyberbullying.

Students will be able to ...

  • learn that people their age sometimes think and behave differently in groups.
  • try to understand the feelings of someone who is the target of cyberbullying.
  • generate ways to be upstanders when faced with cyberbullying.
