Green Thumb Theatre is presenting tagged to our school on Friday, February 6th, 2015. This is a play about the use of social media among today’s youth, and we encourage all parents to download the teacher’s guide from our website and discuss the content with their children as the play includes some strong language and mature content.
We also invite all interested parents to attend the performance. Please arrive at 9:15 am so we can all be seated in time for the 9:30 am start. The presentation is slated to last for one hour.
Social media is becoming a growing concern. We encourage you to talk with your children and help them to become informed users.
Online. Out of line.
The anonymous online world gives us permission to say and do things we would never do in real life.
But where do we draw the line between fun and maliciousness? The harsh realities of cyberbullying and what happens when we’re discovered come to a head in tagged.
As an Officer investigates Jerri and Webber, two young adults, in the incessant online harassment of a fellow student, not all is as it appears to be. Do these teens actually understand the consequences of their actions? Or have they even caught the right people?
How responsible are we for the words that we type and what they lead others to do?
Torn from the headlines, tagged dissects the dangerous potential for harm that exists between social media and young minds.
