4 Lesson Plans on Cyberbullying
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

Lessons on this topic teach students about the effects of digital drama, cyberbullying, and hate speech on both themselves and their larger communities. Students explore how individual actions -- negative and positive, intentional and unintentional -- can affect their peers and others. They're encouraged to take the active role of upstander and build positive, supportive online communities, and they will learn how to cultivate empathy, compassion, and courage to combat negative interactions online.

Even though young kids aren't online yet, early lessons on cyberbullying can easily connect to the social and emotional skill-building that happens during early elementary school. By focusing on empathy and compassion, conversations about cyberbullying can give young kids a foundation for future positive online experiences. For older kids, teachers can help students reflect on their own behavior and build strategies for how to respond when they witness cyberbullying.

Introduce cyberbullying in your classroom with one of these four essential lessons, each of which can be modified for use in slightly older or younger grades:

CESA 7 ACP Artifact Reflections
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

ACP Programs typically have students gather artifacts throughout high school to represent their learning and growth.  Many times these artifacts are gathered in a portfolio format.  This particular reflection on student learning is completed by having students complete an oral reflection about a particular artifact of their choice. The rubric is provided for the presentation with the intent that the student is able to link their experiences in and outside of the classroom to soft skills they will need in their future as a student and employee.  This type of reflection can reinforce current soft skills emphasized in your district and help student make the connection between school and career.

CESA 7 ACP Job Shadows
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

Job Shadowing is an important part of Academic and Career Planning.  Job shadows typical take place in high school and/or the early years of college.  In order for everyone involved in the job shadow experience, it is necessary to take the time to prepare our students prior to sending them out for a job shadow.  Students need to research careers and companies. If students set up their own job shadows, they need to have instruction on how to make the phone call or how to make the request in email or in person.  The ask should be modeled and role played to help students prepare.  Students need to prepare and ask questions during the job shadow experience.  Getting feedback from the job shadow mentor and students is helpful in making improvements for all involved as well as making lasting relationships for future shadows.  And, don't forget the importance of a thank you card from the student as well as the school.

Networking is defined as “the action or process of interacting with others to exchange information and develop professional or social contacts,” and can be a powerful job search strategy. Making connections can not only help you find out about job opportunities, but may also connect you to people who can help you get the job. You can use relationships you already have to network, such as friends and family. However, it is also important to find other opportunities to network, and this can take place through your involvement in extracurricular or community activities, by volunteering in your community, or simply through the people that you know!
