Back to the basics with this lesson plan! I noticed a pattern with my students, social media plays a huge factor in many of the conflicts that I hear about in my office. I really wanted to challenge the students to think about social media and how we can use it for good, but also how it is negatively impacting them. This is perfect for a discussion based lesson.

This entire lesson is all about how to properly use social media. It is made up of 32 task cards with four explicit activities and instructions on how to use them for collaborative learning. Many of the questions are scenarios given where they are prompted to problem solve and think about their actions. The following topics are discussed:

  • How social media impacts friendships and character
  • Conflict that is created through social media
  • Promotes discussion of stranger danger--meeting people online
  • Warning signs of friends that talk about them on social media
  • What is appropriate and not appropriate to post on social media
  • Practices kindness, empathy, and I-Statements,
  • Self-harm posts on social media
  • Self-esteem
