Common Sense Link

Common Sense

Wilson Focus School was a pilot school for the Common Sense Media curriculum for two years. Ms. Jizba attended district trainings and Common Sense Media webinars to learn the curriculum. At the Focus school the curriculum is taught through enrichment sessions at the beginning of the year as the students get their computers, through library lessons, through counseling lessons, and through lessons revisited as needed by classroom teachers.  The curriculum has 8 Units of Study: Internet Safety, Privacy & Security, Relationships & Communication, Cyberbullying, Digital Footprint & Reputation, Self Image & Identity, Information Literacy, Creative Credit & Copyright.
