In this self-paced literacy lesson, students watch documentary videos about bullying and read informational text about how bullying may affect the function of a democratic society. Students develop their literacy skills as they explore a social studies focus on the role of personal freedom, particularly freedom of speech, and how bullying limits such personal freedom. During this process, they read informational text, learn and practice vocabulary words, and explore content through videos and interactive activities. When they are finished, students select and complete a writing assignment offline.
