4. Responses to cyberbullying: As a teacher, there are ways to respond and ways not to respond.

4.1. Ask students how they are, if they tell you about being bullied they should call home, and report it to their principle.

4.2. If a teacher notices any suspicious activity or the temperament of a student changing, they should look into it right away.

5. Lesson Ideas: There are many lessons that you could do with any age group of children.

5.1. For older children, middle to high school, I have always like the idea of providing each student with a small tube of tooth paste and telling them to "have at it". Squeeze it all out, make a mess on their desks. After they do this, tell them to put the tooth paste back in the bottle. Clean it up. The students will be confused and reluctant. After they try for a little while, you make the comparison of words that come out of their mouths to getting the tooth paste back in the tube. You can't. So be careful what you say.

5.2. For younger children K-5, you could have students say something nice about all the students sitting around them. You could make an art project out of it. Put all the nice words on a bulletin board.
