Cyberbullying: Junior School
This 60-minute lesson consists of a series of instructional videos and breakouts in which students can unpack the challenges and share experiences if they wish (although it is of course not mandatory to “tell all” in such a critical, sensitive and public environment.) For the teacher guiding the lesson, we have provided a list of five steps below.

Introduction (TEACHER ONLY, initial background)
Welcome to MySociaLife’s Cyberbullying Module. Pre-teens are largely ill-equipped to understand the internal motivations that drive them to assert their dominance on another. In this module, we help them connect to what cyberbullying really is, why some people bully online, and how there is a key role to play for the majority of “upstanders” who witness this harmful behaviour. Most importantly, explaining why people behave this way, and showing how victims of bullying go on to become successful, provides much-needed hope.
Now that you understand what the lesson seeks to achieve and what the key messages are, please download your lesson plan to guide you through your 60 minute lesson. This pdf document contains:
- An outline of the sections within this module
- A list of the breakout sessions when students work on various questions and topics together.
Some teachers ask for additional resources like exercises or extra videos which they can use in follow-up lessons. This pdf document contains:
- Discussion topics
- Check-in that your learners were listening, were engaged and absorbed the lesson’s information.
- To do this you have two options based upon your preferred style of teaching:
- Download the *no answers shown* quiz and provide it as a written assessment (this requires marking!)
- Download the *with answers* quiz and you can informally and verbally run a class Q&A session.
