Digital Citizenship: Learning How To Communicate Effectively & Safely

My students need a Chromebook, guide books, easel pads, electric stapler, pens, desktop calculator, scissors, poster boards, post-it notes, wastebaskets, tape dispensers, markers, paper, squeeze balls, glitter glue pens, duct tape, and other office supplies and books to bring awareness to local and world issues.

My Students

I teach in a continuation high school. We have been distinguished with the state honor of Model Continuation High School. First of all, the teachers at our site work as a team to continue to challenge our students as well as prepare them for the workplace and for college. Our administration encourages us to provide project based learning. This is our second year teaching with a team teacher and having culminating projects each semester. Students have risen to the occasion. They problem solve, research, reflect, edit, and come to conclusions before completing the culminating project, product, or event. It has been a highly gratifying process. Secondly, our students come here for a variety of reasons including the need for credit recovery, problematic home lives, teenage pregnancy, being new parents, gang membership, struggles with drug addiction, and simply not fitting in at the traditional high school. We all strive to make all students feel like they are part of our high school family.

My Project

My students need a Chromebook, guide books, easel pads, electric stapler, pens, desktop calculator, scissors, poster boards, post-it notes, wastebaskets, tape dispensers, markers, paper, squeeze balls, glitter glue pens, duct tape, and other office supplies and books.

Many teens feel pressured to be nice, rather than assert their opinions.

They may fear being called bossy or pushy when speaking their mind or offering a different point of view. If you have ever stopped yourself from expressing your opinion, you know how bad it can feel afterward. Don’t let yourself fall into that same trap over and over. Your thoughts and feelings matter just as much as everyone else’s—you just need to find your voice.

In our modern world of social media and texting, strong communication skills are needed more than ever. These books will not only give us the tools needed to speak up in everyday or difficult situations, but it will also provide powerful advice for effectively communicating in the digital world.

Once we have read excerpts from our books, we will take on a regular column in our school magazine regarding Digital Citizenship. We will research via the requested computer and share scenarios of malice that has occurred when people share too much online. One photo can haunt you forever. Social media is where students are bullied. It is awful. Students shared that students post videos of disabled people, fat people, or the local geek. If you are hated, the words are vicious. I simply cannot write the horrible slurs that the students have shared with me. This is commonplace.

In our high school, some students excel artistically. Students will also create PSA type posters that provoke thought and challenge the norm. We need basic school supplies to accomplish our goals this school year.

I want students to be assertive not aggressive. I want students to know that the Internet is forever. I want them to make good choices. I want to make a difference in their lives. I want them to know online etiquette.
