Education

Ages 12 to 17
Ask students to debate various attitudes toward spousal abuse and its prevalence (now and in the 1980s). Invite expert guest speakers to inform students and initiate discussion. Encourage students to write about experiences with abuse, examining how we can understand causes and cope effectively. Have media students consider the effect of visual and acting style, as in this ’80s film, and examine how we understand texts through cultural contexts.
