Prepare for an English assignment - Narrative Writing Agenda Target: A person who is the object of intentional action

Escalate: To increase or make more intense

What is our board policy? A healthy school environment must be free from racial/ethnic/gender insults and/or intimidation. Under the heading of "Harassment and Verbal Abuse", behavior that intentionally intimidates or demeans another person or group on the basis of sex, sexual connotations, race or ethnic background has a uniquely destructive effect on school climate, often eroding an entire group's feeling of safety and wellbeing and will not be tolerated in the school environment. A student is being bullied when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more students. It involves a real or perceived imbalance of power with the more powerful child or group attacking those who are less powerful. Bullying can be in multiple forms: • Physical – pushing, hitting, kicking, spitting, stealing
• Verbal – making threats, taunting, malicious teasing, name calling
• Psychological – social exclusion, extortion, intimidation, spreading rumors manipulating social relationships Let's Watch Ricardo's Story.... Do you think Ricardo is a cyberbully? Why or why not?

Were there bystanders and/or upstanders? How do you think the online cruelty might be different from offline behavior?

What do you think you might have done if you were Stacey?

What could you have done if you wanted to be an upstander in this situation? Let's Discuss Upstanders can... Stand up to the offender when appropriate. If you see something negative, say something. Make it clear that you think online cruelty is wrong and tell the offender to back off.

Point out the bully's motivation to the target. Comfort the target by explaining that many offenders act cruelly just to gain control, power, or status.

Help the target advocate. Help the target find friends and school leaders who can help de-escalate the situation. It's easier to stand up to cruelty when you are not alone. Let's Review How Targets and Upstanders Can De-escalate Online Cruelty Ignore and block the bully. Offenders often want attention. Take it away and they may give up.

Save the evidence. You may need it later for documentation.

Change your privacy settings. Allow only people you trust to see or comment on your pages/blogs.

Tell trusted friends and adults. Create a support network. Targets can.... Have you or a friend ever experienced a situation similar to Stacey's? How might the strategies in the chart have helped you in that situation?

Why is it important to be an upstander rather than a bystander? Let's Discuss As a group of two... you are going to map out two stories. One will show how online cruelty escalated in Stacey's story. The other will show how it might have de-escalated if Stacey had some upstanders on her side.
