Manitoba Dept. of Education and Training, Winnipeg.
This package of learning materials is intended to assist educators to understand the dynamics of violence against women; to encourage high school students to learn more about the issue of family violence against women; and to assist students to make constructive changes in dealing with their feelings and attitudes concerning violence against women. Ten student worksheets are included as activity resources to help students participate in defining the complex and widespread social problem of violence in relationships. Organized into three sections, the learning activities focus on developing an understanding of the problem of violence against women. The three sections concern: (1) the nature and extent of the problem of violence against women, including case studies and referral to an audiovisual presentation and discussion; (2) violence against women as a reflection of society, including discussion of the social causes, small group activities and a violence against women quiz; and (3) coping with the problem of violence against women. A bibliography and a list of myths about violence against women are included. (ABL)
