Memorize the phone number you are about to see and hear. Domestic violence is illegal in the U.S. So use this number if you see or hear someone being hurt. You do NOT have to
give your name when you call for help.
The words being explained are: domestic, violence, abuse, and domestic violence. As the teacher explains, anything a person does or says to hurt a person is abuse. For each vocabulary
word: listen, repeat, read, repeat.
How many types of abuse can you name? Here are the most common forms of abuse. If someone asks you "What happened?" here are some
ways to describe abuse.
If you hear or see domestic abuse, call 911. Give the address where the abuse is happening. You do NOT NEED to give your name, when you call 911. Practice repeating and reading these conversations.
This lesson reviews how to answer the question "How often?" It also reviews more opposites, such as safe/unsafe.
