Student Responses to Witnessing Violence

I try not to post CNN Student News items on consecutive days, but today’s episode has a segment that I think could really spark some excellent dialogue with students. In fact, I’m going to use it this morning. The third segment of the show is about student responses to witnessing acts of violence. The segment features students explaining why they think people might not report to authorities violence they witness. Here is one student’s response, “I think the reason nobody called it in is the same reason that a whole class sees someone cheating on the test and no one tells: because you don’t want to risk being excluded from that group or being included in the bad situation.”
The video is embedded below.
