This is an important resource for teaching Internet safety, for parents, teachers and those who deal with young people in situations where access to online computer use can land youngsters in websites they shouldn't be in.

Designed for children in grades K-8, this guide is filled with reproducible projects and lessons that address cyber bullying, managing personal information, and dealing with the approach of strangers online.

The activities allow students to learn about Internet safety in an engaging, self-directed manner and are designed to challenge students to develop critical-thinking skills.

In the lower grades, activity pages are designed to reinforce concepts introduced by the instructor, while in the upper-grades the material can be completed by the youngster in a self-guided manner.

This is a very helpful guide for both professional educators and families. But, with any book of this nature that focuses on online material, be sure to read the instructions carefully. You may not wish to use everything this book offers, and be very careful of any information i-SAFE or any other sites may try to collect from your child or student.

Founded in 1998, i-SAFE is a nonprofit corporation whose mission is to educate and empower students to safely and responsibly take control of their Internet experiences.
