Breakfast focuses on self-defense tactics for women
by Anjanette Booth
Staff Writer
The main topic of dis­
cussion at the Oct. 27 Focus on
Women’s breakfast, “Embrace
Your Power,” was how women
and children can protect them­
selves from the violence around
“Breaking the cycle of
violence against women and
children is in prevention,” said
guest speaker Carol Tenenbaum.
“As women, we need to learn
that there are options and that
we are not helpless.”
Tenenbaum, a commu­
nity advocate, has chosen to
spend her time speaking with
women to help educate them as
to what role they can play in
breaking this cycle of violence.
Tenenbaum, women live with
the fear of assault daily, taking
that fear with them wherever

by themselves, or even walking at
night from their car in a parking

Tenenbaum suggested
many ideas for prevention of as­
lot to the store.
Sexual stereotypes seem
to be one of the main reasons why
women are more likely to be as­
saulted than men. When a number
of women were asked by
Tenenbaum how they were raised,
they gave back such answers as
sweet, naive, emotional, friendly,
attractive and submissive. When
the same question was asked about
sault, such as taking up space when
you walk, having an assertive atti­

Instructors implement new team-teaching program
by Nicole Turley
Staff Writer
Clackamas instructors
Loren Ford and David Mount are
teaming up this year by combining
two seemingly different classes,
Human RelationsandWriting 121,
to show how they relate to each
Ford teaches a human rela­
tions class from noon to 1 p.m.,
and his students are also in Mount’s
Writing 121 class, from 1 to 2
p.m., where they are asked to ap­
ply what they learned in human
relations to their writing.
The purpose, Ford said,
is to “make the classes interrelate
more.” He said that a great number
of students often think “what do all
my classes have to do with each
other.” He hopes that through this
team teaching, as it is called, stu­
dents will be given an example of
how they can use what they gather
from one discipline and apply it to

teaching at the Community Col­

year. Mount said Ford presented
him with the idea, and they got it
approved through the English and
Social Science Departments.

of organizing it in the schedule,

human relations is a good choice
for several reasons. First, human
relations help students brainstorm
for essay ideas they can use in

psychological perspective look at
