The FBI-SOS curriculum is concise, with each module consisting of pre-tests, scavenger hunts, and post-tests, in the following areas & grade levels:
There are a couple of drawbacks:
- Each module's pre-test, scavenger hunt, and post-test must occur within the same calendar month, which could make for some tricky scheduling in some cases.
However, these drawbacks are fairly minor considering the benefits:
- Comprehensive, levelled curriculum from arguably the most reliable source for quality information about student safety on the Internet.
- Fun and interesting activities that entertain, engage, and inform.
- Pre-tests & post-tests that measure student growth & learning.
- Students do not need email addresses to participate.
- Teachers have no papers to grade - the site does everything for you.
- Teachers and administrators are provided with reports on student progress through topics covered, to ease documentation for Internet Safety Mandates.
- Come on, it's the FBI! How cool is THAT?
This might be a nice addition to your current Internet Safety lessons in Grades 3-8. If you're still wondering how to help your school comply with Internet Safety Mandates, this would be an excellent way to start!
