Content provides a case study and demographic data on the social problem of rape and sexual assault in the military. The topic is sensitive and will require a disclaimer when introducing the lesson. This is a relevant topic for both social problems and deviance courses. Students have an opportunity to use this material for in class or online disucssion and develop reaction responses evaluating personal and social assumptions about sexual assault against actual crime statistics. Additionally, the videos and supporting data may be analyzed by students using the theoretical paradigms on deviance (e.g. labeling theory, control theory, strain theory, etc.). Basic computer and navigation skills are required to access and play the materials.
