Intro to Mental Illness & Behavioural Disorders

The lessons on Monday and Tuesday (Sept 30 & Oct 1) began with looking at and discussing the results of the body shape scale survey. After watching the performance of Carols Guevara on X-Factor (and discussing what the big takeaways from the video are), students responded to unit Essential Questions or Essential questions PDF (by posting their answers to the Health Page of their blog). Students then shared the types of illnesses and disorders they are familiar with and we categorized these into groups. Students then participated in discussion on mental illnesses/disorders and stigma. You may also read about Tim Howard, Goal Keeper for Everton (English Premiere League) and his experiences and challenges with Tourette’s Syndrome. Remember to review the Wellness Unit Vocabulary for the quiz next class!
