****October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month****
This worksheet is intended to be used with Leslie Morgan Steiner's TED Talk, "Why Domestic Violence Victims Don't Leave." It is appropriate for most high school-level Social Studies, Health, Life Skills, or Service Learning classes.
The video, worksheet, and class discussion (recommended) can be completed in one class period. I often use this resource as part of a unit on domestic violence. In my Life Skills and Service learning classes, I generally devote at least a week to this topic. This lesson, combined with guest speakers and service-learning opportunities can be an incredibly powerful and meaningful education opportunity for most students.
Visit my Pinterest Page for more lessons, resources, information (and photos of service-learning projects and student-created bulletin boards) on the topic of domestic violence:
