One of the HUGE issues the past few years has been bullying in the schools.  Teens from all over are being bullied, harrassed or disrespected and very few people stick up for them.  However, teens are not the only ones bullied.  Sometimes adults are bullied as well for a number of different reasons.  Marsha Ambrosius just released her new video dedicated to a friend of hers.  It is a powerful video.  Hopefully, it will cause people to think about how far is too far. 

A)  If you analyze this video, what was the overall theme?

B)  If you REFLECT on the video, what hurt worse: the reaction of the lady and kids or the reaction of his homeboys in the park (Not the beating)? Why?

C)  IDENTIFY some different things a person could do to help a person in need like in the video, so it doesn’t end up like the video?

D)  Explain how people could be helped by this video, especially if the people who don’t like this type of stuff will NEVER see this video?

A recent blog post by Anil Dash claimed that cyberbullying did not exist.  After highly publicized suicides like Tyler Clementi at Rutgers University and 13 year old Megan Meier which were both due to harrassment and bullying online, can such a statement be true?  What do you think?  Anil claims bullying is bullying, whether you use a pen to write a note to call someone bad names or the phone for prank calling or the computer to send harmful messages, it is still just bullying.  The computer and technology allow the bullies to be lazier.  If there were no technology, would the bully still do the same things? Explain if you technology IS or IS NOT to blame for the way people are bullied these days. (You must use 5 COMPLETE SENTENCES or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

One of the HUGE issues the past few years has been bullying in the schools.  MTV has decided to come up with an app for your iPhone (and other phones, downloadable from iTunes) called “Over The Line”.  Teens from all over are invited to confess and share how they have been bullied, harrassed or disrespected and then other teens from all over get to vote on whether it was over the line, under it or right on it and at what point it was crossed.  Hopefully, it will cause teens to think about how far is too far.  How is this app helpful?  Identify some different things a teen might post to their website?  Explain how teens who use this app could be helped by it?(You must use 5 COMPLETE SENTENCES or you will get ZERO CREDIT)
