Description:

Within the Seattle School District, we do a lot of bullying prevention training. We also have amajor focus on cyberbullying awareness and prevention training. This is the link to the cyberbullying curriculum which we here in Seattle are rolling out to help ensure online safety for all our students. The materials here are free to use. If you have any suggestions, we'd love the feedback. <p/> The curriculum you find here is complete and useable. However, it is not done. We add and update pages and even more student writing activities and home-school-classroom communications are coming very soon. As they are added, we will seamlessly change out the pages. We are also hoping to get some good feedback as people use the evaluation/feedback forms which are included on the web site with the materials. Even as we say that, we also know that this curriculum will never be really done. Things change too much and too fast for that.<p/> Internet safety and cyberbullying are not specifically “technology” problems. They are social-educational issues around the use of technologies. With this in mind, our development team included people with a combination of classroom, curriculum development, educational/instructional technology, bullying prevention and writing instruction backgrounds. The materials were designed to be incorporated into ongoing bullying prevention programs. However, the individual Lessons were created to be flexible enough shorter classroom meeting-type settings or to be used in longer classrooms periods. If they are used in longer classroom settings, they would also fit nicely into existing Technology, Health and Language Arts units. They can also be used as stand-alones within an Exploratory-type setting. Unlike some of the other materials which are available online, these Lessons were also designed 1) around our WA state standards, 2) by educators, 3) with teachers in mind: all the information and materials which a classroom teacher needs to present a Lesson are self-contained. Teachers who may think of themselves as less-than-tech-savvy will be able to use them as easily as high-end tech users. We are sharing and piloting these materials – and plan to incorporate feedback suggestions over the coming months.<p/> Along with the great curriculum materials, we also have educator and parent training materials available. We hope to be able to expand on this core from cyberbullying to a more complete internet safety curriculum. The plan is to ultimately have a 3-part set of materials - cybersafety, cybercitizenship/ethics and the cyberbullying - like those you see here. This will take time and resources. We have some folks who are interested in expanding on the current MS /JrH cyberbullying into both higher and lower grades. (I think that that may happen quite a bit. We can then take input, vet it, massage it, and coordinate all the look-and-feel.)<p/> Please feel free to share and use this information. If there are any questions, please let me know and, of course, any and all feedback will also be greatly appreciated. </p>
