Lisa Johnson, Grade 4, Hayward Intermediate School
Before school started this year, Lisa Johnson was on a mission to unleash her inner “PIRATE” with the goal of increasing student engagement to positively impact student achievement. Part of being a “PIRATE” is finding and sharing your Passion with students. Lisa attended Tech Camp at CESA #12, participated in professional reading, reflected on her hopes for students during beginning of the year staff development, and conferred with colleagues to support her goal/mission. All of this work came to fruition when Lisa brought her passion for books and learning to her students through a Book Tasting Restaurant in her 4th grade classroom. Her tasting featured genres of literature intended to foster a love for books and learning in her classroom.

October is ‘Keeping Kids Safe Online Month’ in Wisconsin to highlight the need for responsible internet practices for schools and families today. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, in partnership with the Department of Justice, has created a website that houses numerous resources, from a number of organizations and experts, about internet safety to assist with the month-long awareness campaign.
The Internet Safety website is targeted at all stakeholders (parents, educators, administrators, and students) and provides a list of resources and tools to help families and schools support the safe and responsible use and consumption of digital resources. DPI will continue to expand the website to include district exemplary programming, sample policies, and resources for 1:1 implementation. Below you will find the Lesson Planning Matrix which outlines the Internet Safety theme for each week of October as well as provides links to resources for teaching those topics.
New this year is the connection between safe and healthy online choices and the Wisconsin Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) competencies. Embedded in the new WI SEL competencies are perspective, compassion, empathy, and the ability to understand how decisions will affect other people. These are foundational skills to ensure students have in order to help make safe and healthy choices while using digital tools and media.
