Digital Citizenship Instruction - Secondary

Digital Citizenship instruction is provided to all students in accordance with the BCPS Growing Up Digital initiative and K-12 Digital Citizenship Scope and Sequence. Library Media Specialists and ELA Department Chairs have been tasked with coordinating implementation of this mandatory Digital Citizenship instruction at Middle and High schools. BCPS has earned annual District Digital Citizenship Certification by Common Sense Education based upon our provision of this instruction.

 

This page includes implementation guidelines and links to Digital Citizenship resources for MS & HS Library Media Specialists.

 

Middle School

 

 Implementation for 2019-20:

  • MS LMSs are responsible for coordinating implementation of Lessons & Slam Dunks for Grades 6-8 in collaboration with ELA Department Chairs and content area teachers.

    • Two Grade 6 Lessons MUST be implemented in ELA classes as they are integrated with ELA & GT ELA curriculum Unit 2.  

    • Slam Dunks for Grades 6-8 may be implemented in other content areas (e.g. Health, Social Studies, Science) ONLY IF all students in the grade level are enrolled in the course and will receive the instruction.

      • Teachers in content areas other than ELA must add you to their Course and make you an Admin so that you can copy the Slam Dunk links and Quiz from the Secondary Library Media Group resource folder to their Course.  

    • See the 2019-20 Implementation Plan for suggested content connections and implementation options.

      • Grade 8: Online Relationships is on the topic of sexting. Recommend partnering with Health teachers, who have a lesson on sexting in Health curriculum (may be combined as one lesson). Gr 8 Health teachers also have forms on file for any students whose parents/guardians have Opted Out of lessons on sexual health; consider whether to include these students. 

    • Schoology Quizzes are required but may be ungraded. Quizzes must be assigned to classes by teacher of record, or teacher can add LMS to the Course and shield them as an Admin for assigning a Quiz.

      • NOTE: To preview a Quiz in the Secondary Library Media or Secondary ELA curriculum folders, the teacher/librarian must Add to Course or Copy to My Resources.  You can do so from the cog beside the Quiz in the curriculum folder.

High School

Implementation for 2019-20:   

  • HS LMSs are responsible for coordinating implementation of Slam Dunks or Lessons for Grades 9, 10, & 11 through ELA classes, in collaboration with their ELA Department Chair. 

    • See the 2019-20 Implementation Plan.

    • HS LMS should offer to co-plan/facilitate these as they are able. You are not required to teach every lesson yourself, but expected to support and ensure implementation in collaboration with ELA teachers.

    • Lessons may be skipped this year ONLY if you can verify that all students received the lesson in ELA classes at the previous grade level in 2018-19. We know that at many High Schools these lessons were NOT implemented in 2018-19 at all grade levels.  

  • Slam Dunks/Lessons may be taught in any order, however it is recommended that these be taught early in the school year. They may be connected to relevant ELA units and learning activities (e.g. literary selections or research), or scheduled at the beginning or end of a quarter before students begin a new ELA Unit.

  • You and your instructional partners may use either the Slam Dunks (which students can complete semi-independently) -OR- the alternative, more teacher-directed Lesson Plans in Schoology.  

  • Schoology Quizzes are required but may be ungraded. Quizzes must be assigned to classes by teacher of record, or teacher can add LMS to the Course and shield them as an Admin for assigning a Quiz.
