Before reading: Social networking and communicating on the Internet is now a part of every day life. As such, it needs to become part of our curriculum. In this case, I want to focus on the social skills and etiquette used on social networking sites. Moreover, I want to show students that what you post on a social networking site can have real consequences. I believe when we're teaching students social skills, we need to take into account that part of their social communication is now the Internet.
After reading discussion questions:
1. How would you feel if a teacher posted something positive/negative on the Internet about you? (Facebook, twitter, blog, etc.)?
2. How would you feel if your teacher called you a "hot mess"?
3. Have you ever posted something about a teacher or another student on the Internet? Was it positive or negative?
4. What do you think should be the consequence for this teacher?
5. Do you think you should be allowed to write anything you want on the Internet?
6. Do you think that social networking sites should have rules? If so, what should the rules be?
One of the most effective ways to provoke student thought is through the building of “rich” questions.

Through the use of a template, questions can be created in any way that you want and provide you with a specific platform to begin your questioning focus.
