Here is a good article about CyberBullying from another list that I belong to.


> Hey folks, here is a really good "teachable moment" story on
> cyberbullying from today's San Francisco Chronicle:
> "More than 1,000 new supportive e-mails and letters have flooded in
> for bullying victim Olivia Gardner, a middle school student in Novato,
> since The Chronicle published a story last week about a letter-writing
> campaign started by two Mill Valley sisters. "
> Here is the link to the full story:
> One of the best ways to prevent cyberbullying is to empower the bystanders.
> Teens really do have the ability to make a difference. You can use
> this story in your class for a discussion about how your students can
> respond proactively to address this concern. Please make time for
> this. It is important.
> To further your discussion, there is student curriculum on my site.
> There is also a one page CyberbullyNOT poster that you can post in
> your room/library/computer lab.
> Please feel free to forward this message further, especially to the
> safe schools personnel in your district.
> Also check out my Cyber-Safe Kids, Cyber-Savvy Teens site for booklets
> for Teens and Parents on Internet safety. These can be freely
> reproduced and might be helpful to send home before summer starts. By
> next fall (actually by NECC) I will have a Powerpoint that you can use for parent workshops.
> All best.
