A Beautiful Man: A story about teen domestic violence

Click Here To Download Story

This is a narrative about a young woman who becomes aware that her best male friend abuses his girlfriend.

I was inspired to publish this when one of my female students declared that Rhianna must have done something to make Chris Brown mad. Needless to say, I was dumbfounded. How do you rationalize this with a 14 year old child?

This is definately a discussion that needs to be had. It also comes with a great variety of questions: literary analysis, literary terms, character analysis, and personal response.

This is not the the final draft so be ware of TYPO's. You can use this as an EDITING lesson as well.

I hope this sparks a meaningful discussion between you and your students.
