The Cyberbullying Toolkit for Tutors & Mentors

 

Vanessa Van Petten and America Learns

Free

This online toolkit provides clear guidelines for tutors and mentors to help the one in 10 U.S. teenagers who report being victimized by cyber-harassment. The four pages describe typical incidents – such as embarrassing photos or rumors posted on social networking sites or cell phones – and offer concrete steps to stop the harassment. Especially helpful are questions to ask teens to pinpoint their roles in the situation, from victim to bully to bystander. This valuable resource also offers advice on when to inform supervisors and parents.

Van Petten is attuned to online culture, addressed by her blog at http://www.onteenstoday.com, where several toolkit links provide further help for cyberbullying at http://americalearns.net/cyberbullying.
