Ms. Abraham-Digital Harassment Reflection

Dear 7th Grade Students: Please write a paragraph in response to the following post regarding our conversation in advising this week on digital harassment (aka-"Cyber Bullying"). Please include a topic sentence in your paragraph and a summary/conclusion sentence at the end. Your reflection paragraph should contain a minimum of six sentences.

Over our last three meetings I hope you had the time to reflect upon on what it means to be a good digital citizen. Remember to never post private information about you, your friends or your family online. Also, be sure to tell your mom or dad if you are ever in a situation online that doesn't feel right. I enjoyed working with you all and I thank you for your participation in this blog reflection project.

Please reflect on the following post:
What can teachers, students and parents do to help put an end to digital harassment/cyber bullying? Think about your experience in adivising today and the DVD that we watched. For more information on Ryan Halligan and his story, visit the following link:


  1. Students, parents and teachers can do some things to stop Cyber-Bullying. Here's what I think. Students can watch who they talk to and tell a trusted adult if they see somrthing suspicious. They can also only talk to people who they know outside of the net. Parents can talk to thier kids and make sure they aren't being harrased on-line. And teachers can help by watching the mood of kids at school and making sure that they are doing their work and hanging out with friends and not by themselves.

  2. All adults and students can help prevent digital harrasment. To prevent the whole thing, students shouldn't say anything bad to one another. If you don't have something nice to say don't say it at all. Teachers and parents can watch over the kids to see if they are acting normally, hanging out with friends and doing well in school.
