2. Lindsay leaves a mean comment (Lardo and Dogface) on a picture. There is a chat room where people from the school talk trash. Why do you think it’s easier to say things through internet conversation rather than face-to-face conversation?

What are the possible positives of friending James?



What are the possible negatives of friending James?

5. Make a prediction. Who do you think “James” is? Explain your answer.




6. How do you think Taylor felt when Cheyenne reacted the way she did after being called a name? Do you think this was the right thing to do as her friend? Why or why not?



7. Were you surprised when you found out the real identity of “James”? Why or why not? Explain your answer.



Why do you think this person did what he/she did?



8. How do bullies get punished? Do you think cyberbullies should be punished like regular bullies? Why can’t cyberbullies be punished like regular bullies?





9.  Lindsay’s dad defended her cyberbullying by saying it was Lindsay’s right of freedom of speech. Do you think he handled the situation correctly? Why or why not?





10.  How did Taylor’s experience with cyberbullying affect her friends and/or family?

What would you have done the same? What would you have done differently?
