    Minds On

    Have students gather in their presentation groups and prepare for their role play. Students reflect on how a different action, decision or choice would have made a more positive outcome to the story. Have students record their reflections on an index card. As groups practice their role play, have them consider their reflection response and how their ideas could be integrated to make their role play even better.

    Presentations

    Each group will present the role play they developed in Lesson 4. After each role play the presenting group will complete Student Resource: Self/Peer-Assessment and submit an individual copy with their completed Student Resource: Cyber Organizer.

    One of the groups watching will be responsible for providing a peer assessment for one of the role plays including input and constructive feedback. Students will use Student Resource: Self/Peer Assessment.

    Consolidation

    Have students reflect on the three to five ways they can be safer on the Internet they identified and included on their Student Resource: Cyber Organizer in Lesson 1. They may add to this list or make changes prior to handing it in. This could include how to react to potentially dangerous situations as well as how to ensure they do not put themselves in dangerous situations.
