Functional illiteracy in American society is devastating. In America, statistics reflect and an astronomical number of people who suffer such a fate, that is, barely reading comprehension and some even with degrees who (for lack of a better word) erode society. Consequently, this is a social disgrace, but that may be just an opinion without a cause. In my research, I was really surprised when my friend called me about teaching young children in China the English language. I was surprised because though I have nearly three degrees I still have no confidence and motivation in my ability to see that my skills are valuable. However, the more I see the need to learn and teach it is for people right here at home, because I see that though the need is great right here in America that education here needs an overhaul and I ask how are our skills in teaching sought after in other countries when our children fail so often, especially in lower advantaged school districts. There must be more of an effort expounded upon for educators to help our students, but this [too] begs the question as to whether or not our teachers are prepared to the task of training themselves. Therefore, in this paper is discussion of an issue concerning domestic violence that usually would take place in a group setting, however, here I will add technology to engage and enhance the lesson.
Functional Illiteracy and Domestic Violence
Remembering my own experience, and knowing nothing about the justice system other than what I have heard and experienced in times past and nothing about standing up for my rights. I was introduced to an advocate who I initially had spoken with over the phone. Hence, with degrees didn’t have a clue what was going on. It took about an hour in the wait, however, beforehand could have been a video presentation introducing advocacy and the process to that. (Watch:
Domestic%20Violence%20Advocacy%20ProjectDomestic Violence Advocacy Project). It is the case, when the advocate did come in she immediately began to shove papers in my hands to sign. I think the video would have been an icebreaker (so to speak) of what to expect initially from their organization.
Grueling paperwork on top of paperwork
I believe, that if the advocate understood the people they call victims, or, even asked their clients I know computers and emails then some of that could have been done in the privacy of home. I was given an appointment for food stamps (if I needed those), with legal aid (had to fill that out there), because the first question out of her mouth was, “Are you going to divorce him?” Another application I filled out was for victim assistance. In short, the county will not give help to maintain oneself unless the victim is working, but will allocate funds to help them relocate. In retrospect, a concern is what if I do not want to? I as a woman, functioning in society have this concern because it was the winter season – December, and I have my elderly father who lives with my children and me. How could I move? Needless to say, we are still here but not without stalking which is a direct violation of (now) three protective orders. Why didn’t I know what to expect from them this service regarded so highly? Hence, for this assignment I believe could have been in a video or podcast or something with relevant content (Listen to:
http://www.npr.org/2013/05/31/175617775/why-don-t-domestic-violence-victims-leaveWhy Don't Domestic Violence Victims Leave?). Leslie Morgan Steiner is an excellent example of myself and many other women who have been victimized. Motivation
Keller’s Motivation Theory has always been a favorite of mine because the model allows the use of (a) active participation, (b) use of humor, (c) conflict, and (d) real world examples (Pappas, 2015). Let me say here that instructors should move on from the act of the abuse to incorporate lesson that demonstrates areas that may not be known, such as, the tendency that many abusers are also narcissistic. So there are a number of challenges for a program to develop with the aid of multimedia. For example, earlier there was mentioning of a video and while watching that I discovered that many women might not know that abuse is occurring because at the time the abuse may not be physical. Therefore variety is added to the lesson.
Lastly, these are a few examples of how multimedia can enhance a lesson, that is podcast for those who can sit and list, video presentations to bring information hidden from view such as real life situation, and also to present process. That means, an explanation of what are we signing and why because not all people understand anything other than what they live through. Therefore, classrooms, whether online or in actual face to face settings are more equipped to help their students to see everything there is to know about the subject they are learning. Ultimately, instructors are more than knowledgeable – they are experts and so do their students become.
