   Partnership to Address Violence through Education

The Draw the Line initiative was established by P.A.V.E. to address the ever-growing epidemic of cyber bullying.  As the use of technology continues to skyrocket, children have access to a variety of means to cause harm to others in the form of emails, texting and posting rumors and hurtful and damaging comments about others on social networking sites, such as Facebook, MySpace and Formspring.

An in-School program for children in grades three through twelve addresses issues of cyber bullying utilizing a curriculum called “The Wild Wild Web” (grades 3 through 6) which defines what cyber bullying is; establishes a 3-rule code of conduct for the web; exposes the critical role of the bystander in common bullying scenarios; and offers simple tips for documenting cyber bullying attacks. 

For grades 7 through 12, “The Dark Side of Technology” looks at cyber bullying and the pitfalls of social networking and “sexting”.  The curriculum utilizes a power point presentation, video clips and role playing activities.  All students receive a “Report it, don’t support it! Stop Cyberbullying” bookmark that includes 9 effective ways to deal with cyber bullying.
