Students Take On Cyberbullying (3 min)

Grade Level: 
Middle School (6-8)
High School (9-12)

When Facing History teachers Jamie Lott and Mary Sok asked their World Cultures class about bullying at their school, the class described the hallways as safe. But after listening to a presentation given by hate crimes task force officer Dave D'Amico, they started a discussion about the widespread problem of online bullying, and how they as a class could take the first steps toward preventing it.

 I was scrolling through this girl's page on Instagram (I thought she was my friend) becuase her page is set up as public.  I was appalled, disgusted, and hurt when I saw a picture of the back of me that captioned how sloppy I was and looked.  I'm at a University so I thought about telling our Dean of Students on her, which would have surely got her put out.  There is a zero tolerance for bullying here.  Instead, I reported all of her pictures on Instagram.  I don't know what she is doing on her oage now since she set it up as private, but I sometimes wish that I would've got the Dean involved.  I hope that now she realizes just how much her actions can impact her, and be more cautious about things for now on!
