Risky Online Relationships (9-12)

How can you tell when an online relationship is risky?

Students first talk about common impressions of “stranger danger.” Students learn why the term “online predator” is misleading, and how to identify more realistic forms of inappropriate contact. Students then discuss a story about a teen’s risky online relationship, and draw conclusions about how to stay safe online.
