Using Story Structure for Lesson Design in Teaching about Sexual Assault
Erbe, Ryan G.; Kearns, Katherine D.
Health Educator, v48 n2 p23-27 Fall 2016
The present pilot study examines the use of story structure for lesson design to promote student engagement in a lesson focusing on sexual assault prevention. The effect of the story-based lesson on undergraduates' knowledge and perceptions of sexual assault was studied using a quasi-experimental mixed methods design. Results of the study indicated that using story structure for designing and implementing the lesson increased students' concern about sexual assault and influenced attitudes about prevention away from law enforcement and punishment towards personal responsibility with respect to consent and alcohol use. Recommendations for college health education are discussed along with recommendations for future research.
