Bullying is an issue for everyone. On your piece of scratch paper, write about a time that YOU were bullied. It can be about ANYTHING. Please DO NOT put your name on the paper. Ball up the paper and toss it across the room Pick up a balled up paper that was tossed near you One at a time read what is on the paper

How did it feel to read what was on the paper you read? What do we all have in common?

Safe: keep hands and feet to self Honest and Trustworthy: Tell the truth—even when it is difficult to do so Accountable: Practice what you learn when you are outside the classroom Respectful: Treat others the way you would like them to treat you.

10 Bullying is… When one person or a group of people scare or hurt someone else over and over again. Bullies hurt others who are often weaker or less confident. Bullying is often done on purpose and it can happen anywhere, such as at school, in the park, on a sports team, on the internet or even at home. Often the person being bullied has a hard time defending themselves.

11 It’s not okay to hurt somebody with technology.
CYBER- BULLYING It’s not okay to hurt somebody with technology.

12 CYBER -BULLYING IS… Being cruel to others by sending or posting harmful material using technological means An individual or group that uses information and communication involving electronic technologies to facilitate deliberate and repeated harassment or threat to an individual or group. Also known as: ‘Electronic Bullying’ & ‘Online Social Cruelty’

Cell phones Text messages Facebook Instant messaging Personal web sites You Tube Chat rooms Blogs

Usually occurs off school property Fear loss of technology privileges Further under the radar than bullying Emotional reactions cannot always be determined {McKenna & Bargh, 2004; Ybarra & Mitchell, 2004} BULLYING DIRECT Usually occurs on school property Fear of retaliation (payback) Physical: Hitting, Punching & Shoving Verbal: Teasing, Name calling & Gossip Nonverbal: Use of gestures & Exclusion Usually it is quite obvious Emotional reactions are usually visible

15 CYBER- BULLYING TYPES “Flaming”: Online fights using electronic messages with angry and vulgar language Example: Joe and Alex’s online exchange got angrier and angrier. Insults were flying. Joe warned Alex to watch his back in school the next day. “Harassment”: Repeatedly sending offensive, rude, and insulting messages Example: Sara reported to the principal that Kayla was bullying another student. When Sara got home, she had 35 angry messages in her box. The anonymous cruel messages kept coming — some from complete strangers.

16 CYBER -BULLYING TYPES “Impersonation”: Pretending to be someone else and sending or posting material online that makes that person look bad, gets that person in trouble or danger, or damages that person’s reputation or friendships Example: Anna watched closely as Maria logged on to her account and discovered her password. Later, Anna logged on to Maria’s account and sent a hurtful message to Maria’s boyfriend, Jose. “Exclusion”: Intentionally excluding someone from an on-line group, like a ‘buddy list’ Example: Millie tries hard to fit in with a group of girls at school. She recently got on the “outs” with a leader in this group. Now Millie has been blocked from the friendship links of all of the girls.

17 CYBER- BULLYING TYPES “Outing” : Sharing someone’s secrets or embarrassing information or images online. Example: Greg, an obese high school student, was changing in the locker room after gym class. Matt took a picture of him with his cell phone camera. Within seconds, the picture was flying around the phones at school. “Trickery”: Talking someone into revealing secrets or embarrassing information, then sharing it online. Example: Katie sent a message to Jessica pretending to be her friend and asking lots of questions. Jessica responded, sharing really personal information. Katie forwarded the message to lots of other people with her own comment, “Jessica is a loser.”

18 CYBER -BULLYING TYPES “Denigration”: ‘Dissing’ someone online. Sending or posting cruel gossip or rumors about a person to damage his or her reputation or friendships Example: Some boys created a “We Hate Mario” Web site where they posted jokes,cartoons, gossip, and rumors, all dissing Mario.

19 CYBER- BULLYING TYPES “Cyber stalking”: Repeatedly sending messages that include threats of harm or are highly intimidating. Engaging in other on-line activities that make a person afraid for his or her own safety Example: When Annie broke up with Sam, he sent her many angry, threatening, pleading messages. He spread nasty rumors about her to her friends and posted questionable pictures to a public website along with her address and cell phone number.

21 Facts About Cyber- Bullying From:http://www. nasponline
Cyber bullying typically starts at about 9 years of age and usually ends after 14 years of age; after 14, it becomes cyber or sexual harassment due to nature of acts and age of actors 90% of middle school students polled had their feelings hurt online 65% of students between 8-14 have been involved directly or indirectly in a cyber bullying incident as the cyber bully, victim or friend 50% had seen or heard of a website bashing of another student 75% had visited a website bashing 40% had their password stolen and changed by a bully (locking them out of their own account) or sent communications posing as them Nearly 42% of kids have been bullied online and almost one in four have had it happen more than once.

22 Facts About Cyber- Bullying From:http://www. nasponline
Being ignored and disrespected were the most common forms of cyber bullying. Nine out of ten middle school students have had their feelings hurt online. About 75% have visited a Web site bashing another student. Four out of ten middle school students have had their password(s) stolen and changed by a bully who then locked them out of their own account or sent communications posing as them. About 21% of kids have received mean or threatening s. The psychological and emotional outcomes of cyber bullying are similar to real-life bullying outcomes, except for the reality that with cyber bullying there is often no escape. School ends at 3 p.m., while the Internet is available all the time. The primary cyber bullying location where victimizing occurs, at 56%, is in chat rooms. Girls are about twice as likely as boys to be victims and perpetrators of cyber bullying. About 58% of kids admit someone has said mean or hurtful things to them online. More than four out of ten say it has happened more than once.

23 Facts About Cyber -Bullying From:http://www. nasponline
56% of students have personally felt some sort of bullying at school. Between 4th and 8th grade in particular, 90% of students are victims of bullying. The most common reason cited for being harassed is a student's appearance or body size. 2 out of 5 teens feel that they are bullied because of the way that they look. One out of 10 students drop out of school because they are bullied. A victim of bullying is twice as likely to take his or her own life compared to someone who is not a victim. 9 out of 10 LGBT youth reported being verbally harassed at school in the past year because of their sexual orientation. Schools with easily understood rules of conduct, smaller class sizes and fair discipline practices report less violence than those without such features. (Being SHARP is what will help us!!!!!!!!!)

24 Wow. That’s a lot of info…
What can we conclude about all the statistics out there? Turn and Talk about this question.

25 How can you protect yourself from cyber-bullying?
Don’t give out personal information online, whether in instant message profiles, chat rooms, blogs, or on Web sites. Don’t tell anyone your or instant messaging passwords, even your friends. If someone sends a mean or threatening message, don't respond. Save it and show it to a trusted adult. If someone is sending mean messages to you through IM or texts, just log off or shut off your phone. You can also ‘block’ certain people from sending you messages on some Web sites. You can’t be bullied if the bully can’t access you!

57% of students who experience harassment in school never report the incident to the school. 10% of those who do not report stay quiet because they do not believe that teachers or staff can do anything. As a result, more than a quarter of students feel that school is an unsafe place to be. THIS CAN CHANGE IF YOU STOP/WALK/TALK!!!!

27 The adults at AWCPA are here for YOU!
If you feel like you are being cyber-bullied or bullied in general, PLEASE talk to an adult. We are on YOUR side! We will do whatever we can to advocate for you.

28 Thoughts from the Deans:
Already there have been incidences of cyber bullying on Facebook this year.  “Who’s Prettier?” and “So-and-so” versus “So-and-so” are what lead to “trash talking.”  It has involved students from our school as well as students from other schools.  They usually lead to fights. What people need to be aware of is that when something is posted on Facebook, like a video, it can be recovered and shown as evidence.  Facebook has started taking legal action against people who continue to make threats. The consequence of cyber bullying at AWCPA is a suspension due to encouraging a fight.  When a fight does occur, on or off school property, it comes back to the school.  Students talk about it.  They tell their friends.  Any student involved in fighting gets suspended and the police get notified to issue tickets. If anyone is bullying you through texts, s, or Facebook, be sure to save the messages and let an adult know what it is happening.

29 BE SHARP! Remember, if you are SHARP you may avoid the temptations to bully. Make good choices 
