Cyber Civility Curriculum

YMF Curriculum front coverWORDE Specialists have developed a curriculum for teachers to guide students on using social media and other digital media in a responsible, respectful manner. The curriculum includes a teacher’s manual and a complementary multimedia PowerPoint presentation for each chapter, designed to inform students of potential threats associated with online activity – from sexual predators and online extremist recruiters – and to promote help-seeking behaviors to mitigate the threat of intimidation, harassment or abuse. It was developed by our Specialists with the valuable input and guidance of online safety experts, violent extremism experts and students who participate in our weekly Global Citizens Forum, an after-school leadership development program that provides youth communication and conflict transformation skills, which is facilitated by counselors from our International Cultural Center (ICC).

For more information about the curriculum and to contact us for training on the materials, please email staff@worde.org.
