I like to begin class with a Q/A. A Q/A is a question or an idea to be explored. Here is an example:
Q/A: In Order To Be A Good Person, You Have To Do Something Good. So, Why Don’t We?
We don’t learn from others. We get to a certain age and we know everything. So, we don’t listen to adult wisdom until we get into a situation. Jason Whitlock sympathetically tells Brianna’s story as he also relates how his teenage foolish decision making could have ended up tragically. Breana Taylor had some bad habits; we all do. We were told she was trying to move forward, leave her past behind. But her past came to her door step because the name on her lease belonged to her ex drug dealing boyfriend. I don’t recommend you showing this to your class; I do recommend you inform parents about this video. My personal opinion is, every parent with teens should show this video and have a discussion. Kids will listen to a stranger many times before their parents (another opinion). Ask the question, do you agree with Jason’s conclusion, “This was tragedy, Breanna was a victim but she wasn’t an innocent victim.”? There were other reasons that brought the police to her door, what were they? Do you see a pattern of habits? How can you live your life so something like this doesn’t happen to you? What did you learn from this video?
