After the Think, Pair, Share activity, each group will be given a folder containing primary sources written about and by victims of domestic violence. Each folder should contain a scholarly essay, a court document, and letters from survivors. Each group should thoroughly read these documents and answer the following questions about each document:
a. What happened? Who are the major players?
b. Do you think whoever wrote this document is a credible source? Why?
c. Does this change the way you think about domestic violence? The legal system?
d. What is one quote from this document that made you think? If you have more than one, you can share more.
Your group will then share your knowledge with the rest of the class in a brief presentation. Since your classmates have not read these documents, you will need to provide them with all the information you think is necessary.
Your 20 minute presentation should
-Describe in detail each of the primary source documents you read;
-Detail the validity and reliability of the source (is it a police officer? A batterer? A survivor?)
-Be organized and clear
-Be presented in a professional manner
-easy to understand
-good eye contact
-Discuss how group members’ views have changed or stayed the same based on the primary source documents.
-Answer any questions classmates may have about your packet.
